Objectives of the Museum Studies Minor
The Museum Studies minor introduces undergraduates to the history, theory, and practice of museums and collections. Courses encourage interdisciplinary thinking about the theoretical, historical and contemporary roles of museums and curatorial institutions in society. Through the minor, students learn about the preservation, collection, interpretation, and exhibition of art, anthropological, historical and scientific materials for the public audience.
Students majoring in Art, Anthropology, History, or any other major in the Humanities, Sciences, Education, or Business can enhance their area of specialization with the Museum Studies minor.
