Museum and Field Studies Program faculty members are jointly appointed with cognate departments. Faculty members have a variety of research and museology interests in the areas of anthropology, botany, entomology, paleontology, zoology, museum technology, science outreach and education, and other areas.

In addition to faculty-taught courses, professional museum staff teach courses on exhibit design and museum education and advise students in the Public/Administration Track. Guest instructors in the past have taught classes on object conservation, exhibits, and other topics.

Graduate students come to the Museum and Field Studies Program with a diverse range of experiences, from recent college graduates to experienced museum professionals.
