Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

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.
