The Master of Museum Studies (MMSt) Program

The MMSt is a creative, dynamic, multidisciplinary, global, exciting, forward-thinking, professional program with the right balance between theoretical knowledge, practical learning and integrated research.  We train future museum professionals to be prepared for global museological environments in constant change.  We do so by teaching our students how to think critically, to trouble mainstream museological practices and to be sensitive to contemporary multicultural communities.  Along the way, we organize exhibitions on topics ranging from steampunk to sugar, we plan trips to exciting cities such as Montreal and Washington DC, we visit museums and heritage sites in Toronto and chat with curators, educators and other museum professionals.  We even find time to get together over a glass of wine or a cup of hot chocolate! Why would you not want to be part of our community?

The current home of the program in the Claude T. Bissell building in the iSchool is the result of a 2004 decision to include the Master of Museum Studies with the Faculty of Information. Museums, archives, and libraries are interrelated, and students from all fields have similar commitments towards the preservation of culture, heritage, and knowledge. The integration of the programs reflects this closeness.
