STG, Master of Information / Master of Museum Studies

STG MI / MMSt: Introduction

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Overview

The Combined Degree Program (CDP): STG, Master of Information / Master of Museum Studies is designed for students interested in museum informatics, digital cultural heritage, cultural information policy, the intersection of cultural memory institutions (libraries, archives, and museums), digital curation, and use of social networking technologies in museums. The CDP permits completion of both degrees in three years rather than the four​ years​ it would take to ​acquire them independently.

For a general description of CDPs, see General Regulations section 1.4​.3​.
