Minor in Public History

A Minor in Public History prepares you to think critically about the public presentation of history and culture and helps you develop practical skills that will enable you to pursue graduate study in several fields as well as professional or avocational work at historic and cultural sites. Classroom and fieldwork combine to deliver both theoretical understanding of memory, history and practical experience in historic preservation, community documentation, museums, and cultural program development.
