The Division of University Studies offers an interdisciplinary minor in Museum Studies, overseen by an Advisory Board that includes members from many different academic departments and the University Museums. Courses in Museum Studies may address a range of topics, including actual museums (their histories, architecture, operations, politics, ethics, etc.), collective memory, institutional critique, cultural heritage and/or property, or public history. Courses may also count toward the program if a substantial part of their pedagogy is object-based. 


The courses listed below are offered by the MUSE program. As an interdisciplinary program, select courses from other departments/programs may also count toward the MUSE minor requirements. Use the minor link below to find other courses that count toward these requirements.
