Museum Studies

Museum professionals are committed to discovery. As curators of the world’s past, they reach out and touch the lives of those in the present. With the museum industry evolving, innovating, and adapting to the future, museum professionals need to stay nimble. New technologies are developing and museums are faced with a constant need to surprise and delight, in order to keep patrons on their toes.

To meet this challenge, museums are looking for professionals with new ideas for creating innovative, immersive, and experiential displays. Professionals need to actively step out of their comfort zones and seek personal learning experiences that push them outside of the literal and figurative box, in order to touch communities in meaningful ways.

OU Online is excited to offer a cutting-edge museum studies program that provides the push you need. Thank you for considering us.
