|Description:||Learn about the history of museum collecting, debate the public role of museums, address questions of ownership and repatriation of collections, and explore the complex relationship between museums and the individuals and communities that originally created the objects. This focus offers you training in museum principles and methods while also providing exciting opportunities to explore human society in all of its dimensions.
Although there is no stand-alone Major in Museum Studies, students who wish to explore the ever-evolving techniques of artifact documentation, conservation and display (including new multi-media applications) of objects, and the complex context of museum collection may choose a specialization in Anthropology and tailor their course selection to include a focus in Museum and Visual Anthropology.
