Practicum in Museums
MUSEUMS 409 will afford students exceptional opportunities to extend their knowledge of the museum field into the world of practice. Students will spend their practicum developing specific practical skills while gaining greater knowledge of the work of museums and the museum as a living institution. As apprentices in the profession, they are expected to contribute meaningfully to the stated needs and objectives of their museum hosts. Students will consult with MSP faculty and staff to discuss internship opportunities that match their unique interests and talents. They can then pursue individualized opportunities that they create themselves with host museums or select from a roster of internships arranged by the Museum Studies Minor.
