While this may not be news to some of our bloggers — check the faculty page to see why! — it certainly is exciting for us all to learn that the new Museum Studies degree program (available almost entirely online) has been approved at Johns Hopkins!!
“The aim of this program is to provide a perspective on the theory and practice of museums in a changing technological, social and political environment for current and future museum professionals. It emphasizes the role of technology as a pervasive aspect in today’s museum, examines new models of education, exhibition, and business strategies, and explores the role of the museum as an agent of social change.”
