Museum Studies

The minor in Museum Studies is designed to enhance knowledge of the history and role of museums as well as issues of cultural heritage and historic preservation. It prepares students for graduate study leading to careers in museum work by exploring the curation of material culture including artistic and historical artifacts, everyday museum operations and museology’s current theoretical, political and ethical concerns.
