Academic Programs International and Marist College invite students to join the Marist-LdM Graduate Degree Program in partnership with Lorenzo de’ Medici – The Italian International Institute in Florence, Italy. This degree program has been designed to meet the academic needs of qualifi ed students from around the world.
The M.A. in Museum Studies is an interdisciplinary advanced degree program which aims to provide students with an understanding of how museums operate within their social and cultural contexts. Drawing on faculty from the U.S., U.K. and continental Europe, courses are taught using a variety of innovative methods, yet they share two fundamental core principles which are embedded in the program’s philosophy: 1) museums’ engagement with the public is paramount and 2) museums vary greatly across the globe and therefore must be studied from an international comparative perspective.
Located in Florence, Italy, one of the world’s most important museum centers, the program offers unparalleled learning and internship opportunities. Guest lectures by museum professionals expose students to a wide variety of international perspectives, widening their horizons while visits to museums, historical monuments, archives, libraries, and relevant non-profi t institutions essentially use Florence as a classroom, integrating students within the city and offering them hands-on exposure to real world museum research and practices. Both the lectures and the visits facilitate the important transition from student to museum professional at the termination of the degree program.
The program, which will be taught in collaboration with the University of Florence and the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, additionally seeks to position itself as a much-needed forum for reflection and debate on museological issues in the city.
Admission to the M.A. in Museum Studies is competitive and based on undergraduate performance, the candidate’s professional credentials or demonstrated interest in the Museum Studies field. The Admissions Committee is committed to looking at the whole student and will evaluate professional and academic qualifications holistically.
