Open for Amherst College Classes

The Mead connects people, art, and curricula. Using the museum as a site for learning across disciplines, Mead educators work with Amherst faculty to develop assignments, projects, and programs to deepen learning objectives. Our portfolio ranges from one-time visits to entire course partnerships, and we work with a range of disciplines, from American Studies to Chemistry to History of Art.
