Museum Studies Minor

The “culture sector”—museums, arts, preservation and creative industries—is experiencing worldwide growth, and our department is committed to preparing a new generation of highly skilled applied anthropologists for cultural and museological positions in the non-profit and for-profit sectors. This includes jobs in curation, historic preservation, fine arts management, visitor studies, consulting, and non-profit/NGO work. Combining archaeology and socio-cultural anthropology, and collaborating broadly across West Chester University, the Museum Studies Minor offers a hands-on approach to learning that draws on the rich array of the area’s resources, and provides internships and opportunities to work with the exhibits and collections in the WCU Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology.
