Public History

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

Through study, research, internships, and community-engaged projects, our courses do more than teach you history, they make you an historian. Courses will engage you in collecting oral histories, researching historic structures, cataloging artifacts, and creating exhibits.

Practical Experience

History is everywhere, and so are we! Public History students gain practical experience through collaborative projects and two required internships.

What's Next?

Our location offers excellent internship opportunities: national and state parks, museums, historic sites, archives, collections, and libraries.
