MSEM 712 Museum Exhibition Design Studio: Third Semester

4.5 credits 135.0 hours
700 level graduate course

This advanced professional studio is a combination of seminar/discussion format with a
major semester-long project. Students will be responsible for subject research, content, and
interpretive development; schematic design, through design development; and construction
documentation for an exhibition. Students will be responsible for developing an interpretive
exhibition based on a Philadelphia subject. “The Philadelphia Project” uses material culture as an
entry point, and the particular needs of a target audience. Students will formally present their
work to professionals in the museum field on at least two occasions during the semester, and
deliver a project book. This course lays the ground work for the fourth semester thesis
project, and work related to the ongoing studio project.
