Museum Studies

Museum Studies Program

Mesa College’s Museum Studies program teaches you the ins and outs of museum work, from curating exhibits to creating spaces for educational and social engagement. Whether you want to share colorful anecdotes with visitors or collect, display, and preserve items that are wrought with history, you will learn the theory and strategic design behind any museum and art gallery display. As you enhance your knowledge of art and historical artifacts, you will engage in conversations around the value of spaces that preserve history and discuss issues of access and artistic merit that concern public art and museums without walls. Preparing you to hit the ground running in a career as a museum curator or other job within a museum, the Museum Studies Program offers an Art Gallery Internship in Mesa College’s on-site gallery where you will witness first-hand how art exhibitions are installed and affect those who interact with them.
