Museum Studies

As an emerging museum professional, I have gained both academic and career-oriented skills through coursework in museum studies. Covering collections management, exhibitions, and educational outreach and programming, I have a broad understanding of the numerous aspects of the modern museum as well as specific, practical experience in multiple disciplines. Currently, I am pursuing a Certificate in Museum Management through the Virginia Association of Museums to further develop these skills.

  • Introduction to American Folklore
