Certificate in Museum Studies

Georgia Museum of Art

The Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate Program in Museum Studies at the University of Georgia uses a very broad understanding of museums, practical experience in museum work, and the role of museums. The program prepares students for museum careers by adding specific, museum-based instruction to existing departmental academic studies. Students achieve the capacity to investigate and accomplish objectives in the museum field through discipline-based knowledge, museum theory, and experiential learning. The instructors and courses offered through this program are interdisciplinary, representing a range of departments across campus.

Museums by their very nature are interdisciplinary. Fields as diverse as biology, history, horticulture, nonprofit management, education, English, journalism, and collection studies merge in museums and cultural institutions that collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret objects. The list of courses in the curriculum section of this proposal reflects the multifaceted program of the Museum Studies certificate.
