MSEM 630 - Museum Education Practicum

3 credits
This course is designed to develop the practiced insight and skills needed as a professional in a museum environment working with all age groups. It provides opportunities for preliminary observations and experience with professional museum educators and directors led by a professor who conducts the seminar in conjunction with the museum visits and guest speakers. Through this process students develop dynamic teaching techniques that explore and interpret information, concepts, and cultural values that a museum collection communicates. Hands-on techniques and experiences with curriculum development and methodology help students prepare for their research and internship.

Priority enrollment to Museum Education majors. Restricted to students enrolled in graduate programs.
