Return to List of Majors, Minors, Certificates and Special Programs Return to: List of Majors, Minors, Certificates and Special Programs

Public History is the research and presentation of history specifically for popular consumption. Public historians are found in museums, historical sites, archives, non-profits, and digital ventures. While public historians utilize the skills of the historical discipline, they apply them directly to public ends, including education, policymaking, and preservation. A minor in Public History helps students succeed in mastering research, analysis, and presentation skills and better understand how those skills can be translated into satisfying employment and lifelong learning.
