Museum Studies Minor

Program Information

This interdisciplinary minor in Museum Studies provides students with a comprehensive education in the field of museology by looking at the history, philosophy, role, operation, and multiple functions of museums in American society. Academic theory in the political, social, business, legal, and ethical issues that confront museum professionals is combined with practical experience in the form of museum internships, field trips, and directed research projects to give students a foundation for work in university, public, and private museums.  This minor is designed to complement majors in the fields of studio art, art history, art education, history, anthropology, business, interdisciplinary studies, environmental science and studies, among others. Students will meet with the director of the museum studies minor program (Dr. Nancy Siegel, Associate Professor of Art History) to plan their course of study.
