"Overall, I had good professors and learned a lot from the classes. The curriculum was well designed and hands on. I just wish there were some form of job placement / coaching offered to new graduates."

"IUPUI is a great institution for those who are working as well as going to school. It is getting a great atmosphere on campus with the emergence of more dorms, but it also still maintains the commuter campus feel. While many feel like that does not provide the best "college" experience, it offers many great opportunities to get involved in the wider community. As for the program, it is highly immersive. It thrives on getting involved in the career you want to pursue, and they strive to place you in internships and jobs that will get you there. The downside is that it is sometimes difficult to get into the classes you need due to the small size of the program."

"I learned a lot from my peers, as well as my instructors in this program. They are very supportive, and eager to connect you with the museum community locally and beyond, which is a must in this job market. The program stresses museum-community engagement, not collections development. This is great for those interested in education and exhibits. Maybe not as great for collections students. But it certainly offers a useful perspective of museum work today."

"IUPUI's graduate Museum Studies program has a lot to offer. The program focuses on hands-on community learning with just the right amount of theory to supplement. The classes span a wide breadth of the museum world, so you will come out ready to take on any task. There is also the opportunity to specialize in whatever aspect interests you most. The instructors are all very knowledgeable, most working in museums and teaching at the same time, and they are always willing to give you their time. Another plus for this program is the location. Indianapolis is home to many museums so there is plenty of opportunity for work, internships, and volunteering. The only real issue I have with this program is the lack of funding. They are a relatively new program and have yet to establish the kind of funding needed to help students cover the cost of tuition. The good news is that this is one of the least expensive museum studies programs out there, so even without the extra funding, it can still be pretty affordable. Overall, I'm 100% satisfied with choosing IUPUI's Museum Studies program for graduate education."
