This certificate program will prepare our students for careers in public history. It will cover the theory and practice of public history. Students will develop an understanding of the ways in which public historians shape public perceptions of the past and the ways in which public perceptions of the past shape public history. Practical application will be incorporated in both the course work and through class activities and projects, both in and outside of the classroom, visits to local and regional museums and archives and interaction with museum and public history professionals during required internships.

Students will also develop a basic competence using a variety of digital history platforms. A student must complete the following requirements in addition to the General Studies requirements. No grade lower than “C-” will satisfy major requirements.
