Pre-Professional Curricula in Public History


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

Public or applied history refers to careers in history-related fields other than teaching. The major areas include museum management, archival management, and historic preservation, as well as the production of historical programs for the media. A master’s degree in a public or applied history program or certification upon completion of certain graduate courses is needed prior to employment.

The Department of History & Political Science recommends curricula which combine a major in history with a second major or minor and electives, providing an advantageous undergraduate basis for a public history career. Curriculum recommendations are available from the department chair.
