Museum and Heritage Studies

The Museum and Heritage Studies major is a distinctively interdisciplinary program that introduces students to a rich variety of approaches for presenting and studying visual and material culture. The program is designed for a broad range of students in the arts, humanities and social and natural sciences.

Majors will take core courses in museum and heritage studies, and select from supporting courses in several departments. Courses in the major encourage the development of fresh perspectives and practical skills, and are taught primarily by museum professionals at Randolph College and its faculty in archaeology, art history, biology and history who have developed a special interest in tangible cultural heritage.

The major includes a senior program featuring an exhibition broadly defined, designed and executed by each major.

The program is based on Randolph College’s world-class Maier Museum of Art and the College’s notable natural history and archaeology collections, and has a strong commitment to hands-on, experiential learning in and out of the classroom.
