JTCC Career Studies Certificate in Museum Studies

VAM is proud to partner with John Tyler Community College (JTCC) as they now offer a Career Studies Certificate in Museum Studies. This online program is designed to provide an introduction to the museum field and professional development for students already employed by museums or other cultural organizations engaged in the maintenance and exhibition of collections.
