FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The University of Saint Francis School of Creative Arts is partnering with the Fort Wayne Museum of Art to launch a new four-year degree program.
The new Museum Studies program was announced Monday. It’s one of only two degree programs in the region. The program is intended to prepare students to enter the market for jobs at many types of museums, since having experience in a museum environment is typically required for entry-level jobs.
According to USF:
This collaborative effort between USF and the Fort Wayne Museum of Art will provide students with a combination of project-based learning through practicum courses and a series of academic courses that prepare students with the theoretical background and knowledge to enter the museum profession. The program offers many exciting opportunities for the application of knowledge, skills and critical thinking associated with a variety of disciplines.
Applications for the program are now being accepted for enrollment.
