St. Petersburg: The Art and Science of Museums

Study Abroad

Russia's rich cultural heritage is complimented by the unique emphasis that Russians place on history and education. In Russia, these elements have combined to produce one of the world's most extensive museum systems, well-known for impressive collections, thematic versatility, multiplicity of display modes, and sheer number of institutions. With private and public support, many of Russia's museums are modernizing and new museums are being established. Russians have supported this as some of the world's most avid museum enthusiasts.

This program is for students of museum science/studies or museum management and those who want to understand the Russian museum phenomenon through a behind-the-scenes approach. This program is for students looking to understand how cultural and historical heritage can be best preserved and transmitted.
