Museums are essential structures that house a variety of unique and historical objects. Curators are highly skilled museum professionals that obtain, organize, and manage museum collections. Curators typically need at least a master degree in art history, museum studies, or other related field. Some curators that work in science or natural history museums have a doctorate degree. Others gain two master degrees in museum studies and a specialty area to remain competitive in the field. Employment of curators is expected to grow much faster than average for all professions, increasing 23% from 2008 to 2018.
