Student Learning Outcomes for Academic Programs

A.S. in Gallery and Museum Studies 

General Education Outcomes

A robust general education is founded on the knowledge, concepts, methods, and perspectives that students gain through the study of many academic disciplines. These disciplinary studies stimulate intellectual inquiry, global awareness, and cultural and artistic appreciation: they equip students to make informed judgments and remain engaged beyond the classroom. To that end, QCC promotes educational activities that allow students to demonstrate that they can:

  1. Communicate effectively in various forms
  2. Use analytical reasoning to identify issues or problems and evaluate evidence in order to make informed decisions
  3. Reason quantitatively as required in various fields of interest and in everyday life
  4. Apply information management and digital technology skills useful for academic research and lifelong learning

To support these institutional general education outcomes, the academic departments—through their programs—may also assess the ability of students to:

  • Integrate knowledge and skills in the program of study
  • Make ethical judgments while recognizing multiple perspectives, as appropriate in the program of study
  • Work collaboratively to accomplish learning objectives

Approved by the Academic Senate on February 13, 2018.

Program Outcomes

  1. Make ethical judgments while recognizing multiple perspectives, as appropriate in the program of study
  2. Utilize the vocabulary of the discipline
  3. Execute a curatorial project from conception, to installation to marketing and promotion
  4. Examine different art institutions in relation to geographic, historical, and cultural contexts
  5. Recognize and discuss social, psychological, emotional, and aesthetic implications of exhibition decisions
  6. Use design principles, theories, and practice, and art historical analysis to approach and apprehend the diversity of human culture and expression in theory and life
  7. Explain the funding structures and business models of various types of museums and galleries including artist-run organizations, commercial art businesses, and not-for profit art organizations
  8. Handle and recognize the appropriate care for objects and artifacts of various materials and time periods
  9. Correspond and collaborate professionally with art professionals such as grant makers, curators, artists and other arts administrators
  10. Research and write introductory and interpretive wall text of museum quality
