Museums and Cultural Heritage incorporates the fields of architecture, anthropology, art, history, and cultural studies to study the identification, preservation, and/or representation of art and heritage materials. Such materials often serve as the evidentiary basis for humanistic, architectural, and social science disciplines.

Students will learn about the preservation and use of tangible and intangible cultural heritage for study, archival purposes, and public display through the study of museums and cultural heritage institutions, new digital analysis tools and media, and traditional methods of preservation and analysis.

Museums and Cultural Heritage does not currently offer an academic program at the graduate level.
