College and University Programs

Come explore and take a break from the classroom! Work here! Or simply get your homework done.

Group Visits

All faculty bringing classes of ten or more students need to book their visits in advance. For more information or to make reservations online, visit Groups. Our University Members are admitted free of charge.

Please note that select galleries are closed for renovation and individual works may be unavailable.

MFA Ambassadors

The MFA Ambassador Program is an opportunity open to work-study eligible students at participating universities. Ambassadors provide on-the-spot customer service to MFA visitors throughout the building. They help visitors plan and navigate the Museum and offer guidance and interpretation. Positions begin in the fall semester and require a year-long commitment. For more information, please see MFA Ambassador Program or contact Jonathan Bach (617-369-4058).

Made possible by the Susan and Digger Donahue Fund for the Ambassador Program, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Elisabeth K. Davis Communication Fund.


The Museum offers a number of unpaid internships in departments across the Museum. Build your resume while you get behind the scenes. For more information and application instructions, see Internships.


The School of the Museum of Fine Arts offers degree and certificate programs, as well as other exciting study opportunities.
