Museum Studies Program


For current information on Museum Studies at Bryn Mawr, please visit:

Bryn Mawr College is pleased to announce a new pilot Museum Studies Program that provides a rich and dynamic education in both museum theory and practice. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the history of museums and their roles in society as well as engage with critical, theoretical museum scholarship. Through coursework and internships, students will also have the opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience in the Bryn Mawr Special Collections as well as in museums in Philadelphia and beyond. The program will be dynamic and inter-disciplinary, intersecting disciplines such as the History of Art, Anthropology, Archaeology, History, Cities, Biology and Geology.  It will also call upon the College’s extensive collection of more than 50,000 objects from diverse regions around the globe as well as the College’s collection of rare books and prints, photographs and manuscripts. The Bryn Mawr Museum Studies program aims to empower students to change the world through their professional practices after Bryn Mawr and to become significant contributers to the world of museums and galleries.
