MUSE 6100:World of Museums

3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to the MA in Art & Design.
This course surveys the different types of museums, their functions in society, and the issues and challenges they face. Visits to local museums and presentations by guest speakers will help to define the roles of curators, registrars, museum educators, and other museum staff, as well as their connections with artists, collectors, and the public. The practices and varieties of museum organizational structures, collection management, and exhibition preparation are introduced through the study of selected examples of museum-based research.
