Anthropology and Museum Studies

Anthropology is the science of human beings: the study of human beings and their ancestors through time and space and in relation to physical character, environmental and social relations, and culture. Anthropology is also the theology dealing with the origin, nature, and destiny of human beings.

Students taking Museum Studies are introduced to the many aspects that museums play in society. They learn about the historical and theoretical framework of museums and are introduced to the day-to-day operations of management, policies, and budgets.

This course of studies also includes the role of proper procedures and care of collections. Legal obligations are explored and ethical questions are considered. Both state and national issues as well as international concerns are addressed.
