What & Why?

Why do we have museums?  How do they shape our understanding of the world?

That’s what Museum Studies at Beloit teaches. Class work is combined with unmatched experience in the Beloit College museums (Logan Museum of Anthropology and Wright Museum of Art) and off-campus museums. Museum studies students use this background to build the basis for a variety of possible museum careers or graduate programs.
