Museum Training Concentration
In addition to providing a foundation in anthropology, the museum training concentration prepares students for research and careers in the scholarly and curatorial aspects of museum work. In addition to the requirements for the M.A. program:
- 12 - 15 of the student's 36 hours must derive from museum-related courses offered by the Anthropology Department or Museum Studies Program.
- Of these 12 - 15 hours, up to 6 may come from internship credits; most Museum Training concentrators arrange for one or more internships at local museums. (For internship procedures, click here).
