Undergraduate program in Museum Studies

The Museum Studies Program at Tusculum College provides students with the academic training and hands-on experiences to become museum professionals. Students develop an understanding of the important role of museums, and they acquire the skills and knowledge to serve their communities as museum administrators, curators, and educators. The Museum Studies Program operates two museums and the college archives through which students gain valuable practical experience. As a result of their learning experience, students are prepared to assume positions of responsibility in museums and other not-for-profit organizations. A primary focus of the program is to prepare students to work in museums with a small staff of paid or volunteer professionals. The program also prepares students who choose to continue their professional development at the graduate level.
