Welcome to the University of Memphis Museum Studies Wiki!

Administered jointly by the Department of Anthropology, College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Art, College of Communication and Fine Arts, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate Program in Museum Studies is intended to prepare students who are currently enrolled in or have graduated from Master's or Doctoral degree programs to enter the museum professions. As an interdisciplinary program, individuals from all fields, including art, anthropology, art history, biology, history, business, education, geology, communication, and public administration are encouraged to participate. The program will help prepare students for entry-level positions in museum administration, education, collection management, registration, exhibition development, curation, and public programs. The program draws on the expertise of faculty from different colleges and includes elective courses from a wide variety of departments.

The purpose of this Wiki is to provide information about the Museum Studies Program, and also to provide a space for discussions, questions, and relevant current events. Please keep in mind that this Wiki is student driven. We encourage all relevant comments, critiques, advice, information, anecdotes, jokes (keep it clean, of course), etc. You name it, we want to hear it! If there's something you'd like to see or if you have any questions, please feel free to voice them in the discussion boards. Good luck with all of your educational endeavors at The University of Memphis.
