Museum Studies invites capstone project proposals

Submitted on Monday, June 03, 2024

The Faculty of Information invites project proposal submissions for the Master of Museum Studies (MMSt) Capstone Projects course for the 2024-2025 academic year.

The Capstone Projects course is a full-year course offered to students in their final year of the program, in lieu of a Masters thesis. Students apply their existing skills and knowledge of the field to lead projects initiated by a program partner. Program partners include museums, galleries, archives and culture and heritage organizations.

The Faculty of Information welcomes proposals that offer teams of students (3-4 individuals) the opportunity to produce physical or digital exhibitions, develop educational or public programs, create strategic plans (e.g., emergency preparedness, climate action, interpretive, or accessibility plans), design and implement strategies for enhanced collections care, or contribute to other well-defined projects that support your institution’s mission and operations.  

Proposals will undergo a selection process to ensure a wide range of institutional, disciplinary, and thematic diversity. We particularly encourage applications for community-centered/ community-driven projects, projects developed with an accessibility lens and projects that centre Indigenous methodologies and protocols. We are also interested in opportunities for students to contribute to projects that are new or experimental for your organization.  

See projects from the 2023-2024 academic year.
