Museum Studies Special Interest Group

Established in 2012, the Museum Studies Special Interest Group (MSSIG) is a volunteer group of alumni friends who support the Program and advocate for M.S. students and alumni by providing mentoring, networking and professional development opportunities

We hope to reconnect with all 430+ Museum Studies alumni during this exciting time of expansion in the Program! There are many ways to support the Program, including: attending special events; participating on alumni panels; serving as guest speakers in courses; offering internships and work experiences for students in professional environments; or, giving to SF State Museum Studies! Please contact us for more information, or We look forward to reconnecting with you!
