Hi! I’ve been thinking about the Museology program in Seattle. What made you choose it, out of curiosity? thanks!
Hey there PigeonsAndPomegranates,
I was looking for a museum studies program which included an emphasis on science museums and science centers - since most programs focus on art and/or history. I found that the program at UW and the one at the University of Colorado at Boulder both had that, so those were my top two choices. I was accepted to UW with a partial scholarship, so that basically sealed the deal for me. (Though the weather in Boulder would have been nicer; still, Seattle has lots to offer, including many cultural centers - e.g. museums - as well as a strong environmentally aware attitude, though Boulder’s pretty good about that too.)
Do you have a specific area that fascinates you? Or is it simply the wondrous aura of museums?
