AMUS-500 Museum Studies Foundations
Fall for 2013-2014
Museum Studies Foundations is the core course for the M.A. Program in Art and Museum Studies. We examine issues that have become crucial in today's museum world, such as ethics and responsibilities to world cultures. Readings, lectures, and discussions address topics related to the institutional identities and functions of museums, public programs, audiences, curatorial-conservation-education intersections, and the challenges of creating and sustaining a mission. Student research plays a central role in the course, and several classes are held in Washington museums.
