Bridging theory and practice, the course considers museum history, philosophy and operations, exhibition planning, design, interpretation, and conservation. Students will explore how cultural attitudes, institutional policies, and social expectations have historically influenced, and continue to shape, the development of the modern museum, while undertaking projects relating to collections research, exhibition development, and object interpretation. The course includes field trips to museums to view exhibitions and to meet with museum professionals.
