What does the 21st century anthropology museum look like? Join the 117-year old Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology this summer as it reimagines its role as a place for scholarly discovery and community-based research. The Museum cares for nearly four million objects that span two million years and the six inhabited continents. Using its recently renovated gallery and collections facilities, the Museum is reinventing itself as a destination where cultures can connect and take action for positive change.
The Hearst Museum is located on the University of California, Berkeley campus, the premier public research university in the United States. Students will be introduced to all aspects of museum work, from collections management and registration to philanthropy, cultural policy, and exhibit design. Students will also receive candid tours of select San Francisco Bay Area museums.
