|The Master of Science in Museums and Digital Culture (MDC) is a museum studies graduate program designed to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing cultural landscape. Students explore how museums, galleries, and other cultural heritage organizations use digital technologies to enhance their services, manage collection information, engage visitors across physical and virtual contexts, and conduct visitor research and evaluation. The MDC program prepares students for such high-demand museum and gallery positions as digital producer, web content editor, collection information manager, digital analyst, social media specialist, digital asset manager, and more.آ
|Courses at the School of Information often engage in projects with museums, such as INFO 644 Usability Theory and Practice and INFO 685 Digital Analytics: Web, Mobile and Social Media.
Museums include MoMA, Canadian Museum of Nature, The Met, Jewish Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, J. Paul Getty Trust, and Monterey Bay Aquarium.
