Museum Practices

Course #: ART 224

This course is an introduction to museum studies for undergraduates interested in exploring the fundamental components of museum and collections work. We look at museum functions as well as the humanistic values underlying their missions, programming and displays. As there are many kinds of museums, the course is appropriate to many majors, including Anthropology, Art, History, and Science. The course features individual and group assignments based on classwork and field trips, culminating with a project developing a virtual exhibition. The class is conducted in seminar format, meeting once per week for 3 hours. This is a hands-on, interactive course designed with the support of the Mellon Foundation.
