Your final project, which you may conduct independently, with a partner, or with a team (depending on the project), will be to contribute something to tangibly improve the USU Museum of Anthropology. Examples of projects completed by past students include rehabilitating exhibits, creating new exhibits, assisting with the Saturday programming, creating new tours, creating operations documents, and designing marketing material. Feel free to suggest a project of your own creation.
You will work closely with the Museum Curator throughout your project to insure that you create something that you will be proud of and that we can put to immediate use. Your grade will reflect your effort and the quality of the execution of your project. The project will vary from project to project, and I will help you determine what your individual product should include. As part of the grade for your project, you must give an in-class presentation during the final two class periods (a sign up sheet will circulate soon in class). Your presentation should be 7-10 minutes long and should explain to your classmates:
1. Why you undertook the project you did.
2. How you executed it.
3. What your product entails (with visuals as appropriate).
4. Problems you encountered.
5. How your product will benefit the USU Museum of Anthropology.
