NEW PROGRAM: EFFECTIVE WINTER 2012
Adviser: Liza Cerroni-Long, Ph.D.
The Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate in Cultural Museum Studies (CLMS) provides foundational training for professional engagement with the selection, conservation, interpretation, and exhibition of inanimate and living collections.
Special attention is given to the cross-cultural analysis, application, and assessment of the various ways “research exhibit-and-presentation” dynamics affect display design in museums and related institutions, and to the pedagogical dimension of museological theory and practice.
A flexible curriculum allows for individualized specializations in various aspects of museology, from the ecological impact on definitions of cultural heritage, to the application of virtuality to exhibition procedures.
