Museum studies track

The program in museum studies stresses those attitudes and skills necessary to accomplish the major goals of any professional museum operation: to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret the art and artifacts of the past and present within an extended curriculum and professional museum environment. The course of study also includes an internship for academic credit under the direct supervision and professional guidance of individuals in the field.

The curriculum provides a broad overview of historical developments, institutional responsibilities and theoretical issues relevant to contemporary museum practice. And it offers a practical and scholarly foundation upon which students may build curatorial careers that include exhibit and/or education program development.
