Program Admission

All students not currently admitted to a graduate degree program at the U of M must also apply to the Graduate School for admission as a non-degree student. In order to continue in the program, students must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA.
  2. To apply, students submit:
    1. transcript of undergraduate degree program and transcripts of prior and current graduate study;
    2. three letters of recommendation; and
    3. a letter describing reasons for wishing to take a graduate certificate in the area of museum studies and how the program corresponds with prior experience and anticipated career plans.

Inquiries can be directed to Dr. Leslie Luebbers, Director of the Art Museum (lluebbrs@memphis.edu).
