Declaring the Minor & LSA Requirements
Can I declare the minor in Museum Studies before declaring a concentration?
You must declare a concentration before you can declare a minor in any department.
Can I use the Museum Studies electives courses toward my LS&A distribution requirements?
Yes. Museum Studies electives can be counted toward LS& amp;A's distribution requirements. See your Academic Advisor for additional details.
Can I use the Museum Studies electives courses toward my concentration requirements?
Yes, but only one class may be counted for both your concentration and the Museum Studies minor.
Can I declare the Museum Studies minor before taking any museum classes?
You must successfully complete MUSEUMS 301 before you can declare the minor. When you're ready to declare the minor, contact us at email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
I completed an internship in the past. Can I count it as my required internship?
No. Students can elect an internship for credit only after they have successfully completed MUSEUMS 301.
Can I complete an internship off-campus?
Yes. We encourage students to seek their own internship experiences, either on campus or off. Please schedule a meeting with the MSP Student Services Specialist before beginning your search.
Can I complete more than one internship for credit?
Yes. You may complete a second internship for credit. If you'd like, it can take the place of one of the three required elective courses.
Can I get a course approved as an elective if it doesn't appear on your list?
You can petition for the course to be approved. Look for the Elective Petition Form on the MSP CTools site for further information about pursuing this option.
