Major in Heritage and Museum Studies
The heritage and museum studies program offers an interdisciplinary major that equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in careers in museums, galleries, archives, cultural and historical sites, libraries and digital humanities.
Our rapidly changing global environment is witnessing dramatic transformations in information and communication technologies – causing institutions that collect, curate and categorize knowledge to reexamine how our society curates and preserves our culture, tradition
The heritage and museum studies major addresses these challenges by engaging students in contemporary methods, global perspectives and transferable skills to help them become leaders in the heritage and museum fields.
Degree Requirements and Courses
The heritage and museum studies program is designed for students who are interested in disciplines that engage with the production of culture, tradition and heritage, as well as its critical analysis.
Special Opportunities at Concordia
