Undergraduate Minor

The baccalaureate minor in Museum Studies provides students with other majors a solid introduction to the museum field, to different aspects of the museum profession, and to the study of artifacts of aesthetic or historic significance. The minor requires eighteen semester hours, including four core courses, and two additional courses at the 3000 or 4000 level.

Undergraduate students at Baylor usually start with Introduction to Museums, and then move on to the other core courses: Museum Educational Programming, Introduction to Museum Administration, and Introduction to Collections Management. Advanced courses include Exhibit Design, Introduction to Ethical Issues in Collections Management, American Material Culture, and American Decorative Arts.
