As a Public History student, you'll do more than read about the past. You'll recreate it. Join us in our mission to further the preservation and presentation of history.
What you’ll study
Our courses do more than teach you history. They make you a historian. Learn through study, research, internships, and community projects. At Flagler College, you'll collect oral histories, research historic buildings, log artifacts, and create exhibits.
History is everywhere, and so are we. Public History students gain hands-on practice with group projects. You'll also complete two internships.
