Understanding of museum curation approaches The basics of historical analysis and interpretation A sense of the work that historians, curators, and collectors perform Strong critical thinking and analytical skills How things that seem to belong to different disciplines actually can “talk” to one another How close looking at even a single object can push beyond academic and disciplinary boundaries How things that may seem unrelated to each other can show relationships between art and science, economics, and culture, as well as between people in many different parts of the world
