Graduate Certificate in Museum Studies

The Graduate Certificate in Museum Studies (GCMS) is a transdisciplinary program open to graduate students enrolled in any graduate program at UO. The curriculum is designed to provide both scholarly engagement with issues related to museums and an introduction to the specialized skills pertinent to museum professionals.

Housed in the Department of the History of Art and Architecture (HA&A), the GCMS collaborates with departments, programs, and museum professionals across campus to provide foundational theoretical and practical training in the museum field, while allowing students the freedom to explore museum operations from a variety of perspectives.

Students must complete a minimum of 24 credits in approved courses. For information regarding the requirements, please see the GCMS website.
