The Phillips Collection

The Phillips Collection has partnered with the Museum Scholarship and Material Culture (MSMC) Certificate since 2016 when the Introduction to Museum Scholarship course assisted the Phillips with redesigning an exhibit space and entrance way within the museum.  The endeavor allowed students to put classroom based knowledge and ideas into practice.

Students in the Certificate program may gain access to the Phillips’s cultural centers in the Washington, DC area. Classroom discussion is paired with guest speakers, visits to exhibitions and “behind-the-scenes” work at the galleries and centers.
