HIS 220 Museum Studies And Collections

3 credit hours

The goal of this course is to give students the opportunity to apply academic training in the administration of a historic site to practical situations outside the traditional classroom setting. Using different museums and historic sites as learning “laboratories,” students will be introduced to different types of museums/historical organizations; standards to which museum professionals adhere; the ethics of museum collecting and representation; the approach to material culture taken by museum professionals and those in related disciplines; and the basic functions and operations of museums, including collections management, conservation, education, and exhibition. 

Prerequisite: None
Course is Offered: Uncertain
