This 15-credit-hour certificate includes two core courses on museum theory and foundations, one professional skills course (such as collection management), a conceptual domain course from your EEB classes, and a 250-hour internship. Dissertation research or collections-based curatorial assistantships or research assistantships can be substituted for the internship.
