For many graduates of museum studies programs and emerging professionals engaged in the formidable task of securing a professional position, working for a small museum can prove both immensely rewarding and unexpectedly challenging. Broadly drawn job descriptions, modest budgets and direct contact with stakeholders are all defining characteristics of the small museum job. The role of museum studies programs in preparing students for such realities is worthy of both attention and assessment.
