Program Overview

The Museum Studies Certificate offers students from a variety of disciplines and majors the opportunity to develop general knowledge of museum operations and practices. This multi-disciplinary approach recognizes the diverse nature of the museum field. The program distinguishes itself by emphasizing the visitor experience throughout all aspects of museum decision-making and planning processes. The certificate is designed to add value to existing degrees in multiple disciplines by providing students with skill sets required by institutions including, but not limited to museums, educational and interpretive centers, and similar organizations promoting public outreach and education. The program also provides a foundation for students pursuing advanced studies in the field of Museum Studies. Students are exposed to the inner operations of non-profit arts and cultural heritage organizations; are provided an opportunity to work hands-on with objects and artifacts; are immersed in current museum methods and cultural heritage literature; and are provided networking and resumé-building opportunities. To earn the Museum Studies Certificate, students must successfully complete two core courses, Museum Fundamentals I (ART 3100/5100) and Museum Fundamentals II - Practicum (ART 3922/5922), and 15 credit hours (undergraduate students) OR 12 credit hours (graduate students) of approved elective courses taken from a minimum of two areas.­
