Hello everyone! I am teaching the History 183 – Survey of Museum Practice course this upcoming Fall 2016 semester and I have put together the final draft of the syllabus. History 183 – Survey of Museum Practice – Syllabus – Final Draft
You’ll find all of the relevant information, such as textbooks required, assignments, and a tentative schedule for our classes.
