Department's profile

Department of museology at the Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra came into existence in 2006 as an independent department after ten years existence of a study discipline "museology", running until then under the guarrantee of departments of history and archeology. This kind of study is quite new in the science system, though the history of museum activities goes back for several centuries. Students of museology gain knowledges and skills not only in the museum works, but also in the fields of several social and natural sciences, legislation, monumental care or nature protection. A part of their study represents an active participation at the projects, especially exhibitions createdd in the co-operation with the Ponitrianske museum in Nitra.
