So You Want to Be a Museologist?

Have you ever thought about a career in museums? Have you wondered whether your degree would set you on the right path for a job in a museum? Do you know what people who work in museums really do? 

Mary Rogers
WVU alumna Mary Rogers will discuss these questions and more in a presentation hosted by the Anthropology Club on Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m. in the Mountainlair Student Union's Mountaineer Room. Anyone interested in learning about how to break into the museum field is invited to attend. The event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Department of Sociology and Anthropology

Mary Rogers graduated from WVU in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology and the University of Washington in 2003 with a Master of Arts in museology. Currently the volunteer and events coordinator at the U.S. Naval Undersea Museum outside Seattle, Rogers has held positions at the National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution National Collections Program, Henry Art Gallery and Heritage Preservation.
