Museum Project Mngmnt Capstone

This final capstone professional practice course covers both the tools and techniques of project management as it applies to several kinds of museum activities such as collections digitization and inventory, exhibition development and participatory exhibition design, special events, capital campaigns and so on. Students examine various components and pitfalls of project management. They will then apply this model to design a specific project typically undertaken in a museum. The M.A. program concludes with graduating students’ public presentations of their capstone projects in tandem with this course just prior to the December graduation ceremony.
