Museum Studies

The Museum Studies minor provides an interdisciplinary introduction to the field of museum work. The minor will prepare students for graduate work in museum studies and for professional careers in history, art, anthropological, or science/natural history museums.

A minor in Museum Studies will uniquely qualify Fredonia students for this ever-expanding discipline, which includes positions in historic preservation, conservation, graphic design, public relations, social media, grant writing, curatorship, and other fields. The minor is congruent with majors in various areas, including Art History, History, Visual Arts & New Media, Natural Sciences (Geosciences, Biology, Physics, Chemistry), American Studies, and Communication, among others. The minor in combination with an education major will help prepare students to enter the rapidly growing field of Museum Education. Moreover, the minor provides opportunities for service learning through internships and the capstone and provides benefits to understaffed local cultural institutions.
