Museum Studies Programs Are Not Prepared For The Ph.D., Hugh H. Genoways

Programs Information: Nebraska State Museum

This article represents a response to the Committee on Museum Professional Training’s (1995) inquiry about establishing a Ph.D. in museum studies. It is also a partial response to Alan Friedman’s call for a Ph.D. program in informal science education in Curator volume 38, number 4 and Samuel Taylor’s editorial note in the same issue saying that a broader program should be considered covering all public programs. I will address the larger field of museum studies primarily because the problems faced by all of these areas of study are very similar.
