Museum Education is one of the most exciting and rapidly group fields in museum. Many museum educators concentrate on K-12 informal education, but others are committed to life long learning approaches, or to working with persons with disabilities, to broaden accessibility and inclusiveness within museums.
Students may wish to enroll in the Learning in Museums course, offered alternate years. Other opportunities for building skills in Museum Education are available through Independent Study courses and through internships and volunteer activities at the MCE and other museums and cultural institutions in the region.
