“I loved museum studies because it opened my eyes to a new realm of theory while still being grounded in the real world. It’s a fascinating field with many practical applications taught by a dynamic, engaging professor. Our readings and class discussions constantly challenged me to think beyond what I’d experienced at museums and to critique them as  powerful institutions, while our field trips supported our academic endeavors with lived experiences. I look forward to taking more museum studies courses in the future as I think they’re an incredibly valuable addition to any liberal arts education, especially as my studies in anthropology and visual studies seek an intersection.”
