About the Program

The graduate program in Museums, Heritage, and Public History showcases the best of an UMSL education: productive civic partnerships, academic excellence, and strong support for students. This interdisciplinary degree with a strong historical core prepares students for professional careers in museums, historic sites and societies, cultural agencies, and related organizations. We address pressing needs of museums and heritage institutions in the 21st century: collaboration and community engagement, digital media and new technologies, and diversity and cross-cultural training.
