Raven Grant, Class of 23'
Since starting the Art History and Museum Studies major at Niagara, I have
learned the necessary skills required to work in a museum setting. I feel that the
program at Niagara has given me the resources I need to start my career in the
museum field. One of the best parts of this program is that you get to not only work
closely with the museum's collection but you also get to work closely with museum staff.

The CAM is an amazing, significant place... On any given day you'll see students working on assignments, touring with their classes or attending lectures and panels held at the museum.

The art history with museum studies program at Niagara University is a one-of-a-kind experience that I can personally say has me feeling prepared and excited for my future career. This program has given me broad exposure to the many jobs that a museum can offer along with providing a strong foundation of knowledge on important artists, art movements and artworks. I’ve had the unique opportunity of working closely with museum staff as well as being able to learn in an actual museum. These are all valuable aspects that have helped me develop not only as a student but as a person and have me feeling ready for the future.
