Museums and Cultural Heritage Minor
The Museums and Cultural Heritage minor incorporates the fields of religion, architecture, anthropology, art, history, and cultural studies to study the identification, preservation, and/or (re-)presentation of heritage materials. Students will learn about the preservation and use of tangible and intangible cultural heritage for study, archival purposes, and public display through the study of cultural heritage institutions, new digital analysis tools and media, and traditional methods of preservation and analysis.
Medical Humanities Minor
The Medical Humanities minor provides coherence, structure, and credentials to the training that many Rice students already receive in this interdisciplinary field. The minor is structured with a required core course, electives from several departments, and capstone practica/internship courses. Students pursue this minor under the supervision of the core faculty members in English History, Art History, Religion, Philosophy, Anthropology, and the HRC.
