Information about Museum Careers
Though a foundation in art or art history is helpful, it is not required for every position in an art museum. However, curatorial positions do demand completion of a graduate degree at minimum, and the heightened focus and expertise gained through doctoral study is often preferred. Departments in which defined skills and knowledge are necessary, but do not require a formal background in art history, include: design, installations, finance, information services, audio-visual services, administrative services, admissions, special events, and retail operations.
