Welcome to the Museum Studies Program!
Today's museums are dynamic institutions playing increasingly important roles in the communities they serve. In addition to being a place for collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting "things," museums have become vital arenas for learning, exploring and negotiating the complex relationships that people have with the social and natural environments in which they live.
