Museum Studies minor

Learn museum theory, philosophy and practice in the Museum Studies minor. UW Tacoma is uniquely located within a central campus of museums with proximity to major metropolitan areas, providing our students numerous internship and job placement opportunities. Our goal is to prepare students for graduate studies in museology, museum management as well as entry-level positions in the field.

A general track encompasses shared practices that involve registration, curatorial approaches, conservation, fundraising and general management.

Declare a minor by completing the Request to Declare/Change a Major or Minor form and submitting it to the Office of the Registrar. You must have earned a minimum of 45 credits and declared a major before declaring a minor.

For questions, contact your advisor or the Museum Studies minor coordinators Stephanie Lile or Julie Nicoletta.
