ARH 205 - Museums in the Modern Era (4 Cr.)


What is a museum? How does it work? Who are the people that make the magic happen? This course will examine the changing role of museums in contemporary society and the various challenges they face. It will also look at three of the major focuses of a museum: Collection Management, Conservation, and Exhibition. Finally, in the 21st century, Education and the Visitor Experience have become two more major areas of focus for all types of museums; how and why did that happen? Course includes one to two mandatory field trips to local museums. Additional visits to museums will be asked of the students in their own time. Open to all students pursuing a Major in Studio Art, Art History, and Historic Preservation or a Concentration in Arts Administration. Sophomore standing required and priority will go to seniors first. Prerequisite courses are ART 102  or VMC 103  (ARH 103 ) or VMC 110  (HP 110 ) or AMG 170 (formerly BUS 170) depending on your course of study, or permission of the instructor. Fall semester.
