Course Description

New Course as of Spring Semester 2021

Museums are fascinating places full of objects that people can wonder about and marvel at. They care for material from cultures all over the world and seek to educate visitors about them. Students have the opportunity to travel to local and international museums in this course, both in-person and virtually, and learn about how they collect, organize, and exhibit cultural objects. Hands-on engagement is central to the course and throughout the semester students experience how to handle, catalogue, and store museum collections.

Note: Students will be responsible for any applicable entry fees to museums visited within the scope of this course.

Students will receive credit for only one of the Spring Semester 2020 or Fall Semester 2020 offering of ANTH 1195; or ANTH 2220.
