Museum Studies Minor

Students interested in the study of museums learn to manage collections, handle exhibits, educate visitors and preserve culture and heritage. This 18- hour minor in Museum Studies located in the College of Liberal Arts/Department of Social Science is physically housed at the Gabor WV Folklife Center. This minor allows students who complete the program to have a solid base in the various components of museum training to include collections management, exhibit development and production, interpretation and museum education and a general understanding of museum concepts for an introductory position in a small to medium size facility as well as a foundation for further graduate studies.

This interdisciplinary academic minor can be attached to most majors and is especially applicable to history.
