Graduate Certificate in Exhibit Design
The 18-Credit Graduate Exhibit Design Certificate Program can be completed in one year and provides students with the tools needed to meet the increasing demand for top-tier exhibits.
From corporate and convention center spaces on showroom floors to sophisticated displays in museums, science centers, and high-end department stores, the Graduate Certificate in Exhibit Design cuts across disciplines to teach foundational techniques using modern tools and digital technology. The program takes full advantage of GW’s long-term collaborative relationship with the Smithsonian Institution, and students design and install a minimum of two exhibits at the National Air and Space Museum and on the GW campus.
Certificate students draw from three university disciplines to customize their programs:
- MUSEUM STUDIES provides the programmatic backbone to collaborative exhibit development, including organizational and theoretical best practices, and content interpretation.
- INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN supports the design process with an aesthetic as well as a practical understanding of ergonomic, architectural, and ADA considerations.
- THEATRE & DANCE supports the exhibit process with a design approach that emphasizes spatial environments and narrative development.
