Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros - exceptional faculty, comprehensive program, and the opportunity to pursue a multitude of opportunities both in and out of museums. Cons - Can be overwhelming to spend money on a graduate program in a field that notoriously pays very poorly.

Graduation Year: 2015

JFKU is my home, and I can't imagine being anywhere else. The academics are rigorous, but the experiential exercises and opportunities bring a hands-on practicality to our learning and practice. I can scarcely imagine being anywhere else, and even though it is a relatively expensive private school, the kindness I encounter in other people there makes me proud to be a student, and I've developed a sense of ownership, dare I say membership in our commuter community.

Graduation Year: 2015

JFKU is a very good school. The content is challenging, but we are well-supported in furthering our goals. My particular cohort is tight and feels like family. We don't always agree, but it's a respectful kind of place. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else, as I'm proud to call myself a member of the JFKU community.

The only way to get a decent job at a museum is to get an MA in Museum Studies. JFKU is a terrific program, and they are widely connected to the field...particularly in California.
