To earn the Museum Studies Certificate, students must complete the three core courses. "The Exhibit" course is optional and intended for professionals at smaller institutions who need specific exhibit design know-how.

PDP courses are offered online, remotely, and on-campus. Please refer to the Schedule Notes for course delivery information.

IMPORTANT: The registration process for all professional development courses requires you to register for your course and update your emergency contact information in CAESAR, Northwestern University's Student Enterprise System. Please contact pdp@northwestern.edu with any questions.
