Programs of Study
Undergraduate Academic Certificate in Heritage and Museum Studies
The heritage and museum studies certificate offers an interdisciplinary program 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, and heritage.
The heritage and museum studies program 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.
The undergraduate academic certificate in heritage and museum studies 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
The heritage and museum studies program offers numerous opportunities for students to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to valuable work experience on campus in the Concordia Archives, Cyrus M. Running Gallery, and the college art collection.
