ASU-LACMA Master's Fellowship in Art History

While graduate training in art history remains a requirement in the museum field, it is one of the most significant barriers to equitable advancement as employees must choose between continuing to work and graduate training. Launched in 2018, the ASU-LACMA Master's Fellowship in Art History was designed to address this issue.

The ASU-LACMA Master's Fellowship in Art History is a three-year program, pairing rigorous academic instruction through traditional master’s-level coursework and thesis with on-the-job work experience. Fellows, who are current LACMA, ASU Art Museum, Pérez Art Museum Miami, or Heard Museum employees with a specific interest in making museums more inclusive and equitable, enroll in two courses per semester remotely, and fulfill language, professional development, and research requirements during the summer, while continuing in their current role at their museum. Fellows also participate in convenings focused on current issues in museum practice and institutional leadership and a customized externship, all under guidance from an outside museum professional mentor. Upon completion of the program, Fellows receive a master’s degree in Art History from ASU.
