Students have the opportunity to minor in Museum Studies at Gardner-Webb University, while completing a complementary major program such as Art, Biology, Chemistry or History.

Undergraduate Admissions

Gardner-Webb’s partnerships with regional and national museums connect Museum Studies students with hands-on experiences and exposure to both theory and practice in the field. The Museum Studies program provides more than 500 contact hours through two internships under the supervision of some of the region’s best museum professionals. Students also benefit from a yearlong practicum that offers participation in the conception, planning and presentation of a museum exhibit for the public.

Our alumni have entered:

  • internships at top museums in the Southeast.
  • prestigious Museum Studies and Ph.D. programs.

The Museum Studies minor requires courses including Introduction to Museum Studies, Collections Management, Museum Education, and Outreach and Exhibit Design, as well as two internships and a yearlong practicum.

Additional information, including descriptions of specific courses and their corresponding credit hours, is available in the Academic Catalog.
