Museum studies degrees alone are rarely sufficient to open up the entire range of museum work to you; instead, many students choose to specialize in a particular field, such as fine arts, history, native studies, archaeology, information studies, geology or biology, then pursue museum studies in order to further qualify them for museum work.
Of course, students graduating with this degree would most often choose careers in museum settings, whether as curators, conservators, archivists or technicians. However, graduates also find themselves in other work settings such as parks, historic sites, educational institutions, government archives, research organizations and libraries.
The Canadian Museums Association (http://www.museums.ca/Cma1/About/AboutCMA.htm) is an excellent resource for both education and careers. The Canadian Conservation Institute also provides information on careers (http://www.preservation.gc.ca/index_e.asp). This source, (http://cybermuse.gallery.ca/cybermuse/youth/careers/planning_e.jsp) under the auspices of the National Gallery, provides would-be museum workers with an overview of requirements and opportunities.
