Consistent with the mission, philosophy, and institutional purposes of Casper College, this education serves as the foundation for further study and meaningful participation in contemporary society.

This program is designed for students interested in pursuing a museum or gallery career. The degree is especially appropriate for students interested in working with art, history, or anthropology and allows focus in other areas such as geology or paleontology.
