About the Program

Sandusky dig imageThe Museum Studies minor examines museums of art, history, natural history, science, and more. The minor stresses theoretical concepts and also develops practical skills.

Open to students in any major, it's the perfect minor for anyone with a major in art, history, communication studies, business, sociology, environmental science, biology, education, theater, chemistry, marketing, sport management, and many more!

The Museum Studies minor prepares students for graduate school, entry level jobs and administrative, curatorial and educational careers in museums, galleries, and historical sites.

Getting a chance to understand the meaning of objects and how to use them to educate the public is how the Museum Studies Program has challenged me.

The interdisciplinary nature of museum studies helps me even in congregational ministry, by learning to look at space and the many facets of any project.

The museum studies courses provided "real world" scenarios - it was a great opportunity and learning experience.
