One of our students, Kathleen Adams, in the certificate program mentioned in class the other day about this upcoming program:
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. If you have any questions or concerns about the course, feel free to email me at any time. If you are familiar with the Introduction to Material Culture course I taught last Spring semester, the workload is very comparable with regards to the readings and assignments.
I look forward to seeing everyone in just a few weeks! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
