The Certificate in Museum Studies complements the MA degree in History of Art and Design by offering both a solid base in art and design history in the museum world.

History of Art and Design courses are augmented by Pratt’s School of Information and the Department of Art and Design Education.

The Advanced Certificate in Museum Studies is a 15-credit NYSED approved program that enhances any graduate degree at Pratt with courses that deepen one's knowledge and expertise in museum history, practice and theory. The program provides a firm foundation in the study of these areas and is supported by a broad range of electives that address all aspects of exhibition, collecting and preservation of culture in museums and institutions of display more broadly.
