This intensive 3 credit Maymester program will introduce students to museum methods and practices using Atlanta’s museums as our classroom. Students will attend a three-day workshop on campus before spending a week in Atlanta visiting museums and historic sites. Site visits will be a combination of lecture and on-site study. Site visits will also include meetings with staff to discuss their work. Students will enroll in HIST 4024/6024 Topics in Museum Studies (Atlanta) (3 credits). This course will count as an elective for the Museum Studies Certificate program. For more information about the Museum Studies Certificate: http://bulletin.uga.edu/HTMLFiles/cert_Listing.html#MuseumStudies
