The 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.
Students who have completed the baccalaureate minor have secured jobs at many museums and cultural institutions or completed graduate study in museum studies or related fields.
The Master of Arts in Museum Studies at Baylor University combines academic and professional training for the next generation of museum leaders.
