The career minor in museum and gallery methods provides students of the visual arts with education, training, and hands-on experience in the theory and practice of non-profit museums and galleries. Art history and art studio majors completing this career minor will be in much stronger positions to find work and prepare for graduate study in fields closely related to their majors. The career minor in museum and gallery methods may also be combined with any other major, provided the student also completes at least a minor in art history or art studio.
Internships are available in the University Art Gallery and at local regional galleries, museums, and other related nonprofit organizations.
