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.
In response to this movement, the museum profession has seen significant growth and greater demand for qualified museum specialists. It is an arena that offers many exciting opportunities for the application of knowledge, skills and critical thinking associated with a variety of disciplines.
