BYU offers Certificate in Museum Practices program

The Department of Anthropology recently announced its Certificate in Museum Practices program in which students enrolled in a graduate program of a related department can participate.

Students interested in the program are welcome to attend an informational open house hosted by the Museum of People and Cultures on Thursday, Jan. 20 at 11 a.m.

"This program is a wonderful chance for students to gain experience in a museum while acquiring the education needed for a museum career," said Laurel Casjens, curator of education at the museum.

The curriculum focuses on care, management and interpretation of collections and is the only one of its kind in Utah.

"This program is the culmination of ten years of research and planning in museum program design," said Marti Allen, director of the Museum of Peoples and Cultures. "It has more museum-oriented academic content, more training in collections-related museum practices, and more real-life, hands-on opportunities than other museum certificate programs in the United States."

Applications for the program are due Feb. 3.

For more information contact Rebecca Shippen at (801) 422-0020.
