Museum and Archives Certificate

The Institute for Human Science and Culture (IHSC) at the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology at The University of Akron announces an undergraduate certificate in museums & archives.

The 18 credit-hour certificate offers an introduction to museums and archives to provide students with a basic set of skills that prepares them for work in museum and archives professions and for graduate study in these areas.


Students from any college or major are eligible. Two core courses are team taught by UA instructors and practitioners from the Cummings Center, and from fields of Anthropology, Art, Education, History, and Psychology. A final capstone course provides a practicum experience working with professionals at a local museum or archives.

Core courses are each initially scheduled once annually and are held at the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology (RDWY 203E).
