Public or applied history refers to careers in history-related fields other than teaching, including museum management, archival management, and historic preservation, as well as the production of historical media programs. In most cases, a master’s degree in a public or applied history or certification upon completion of certain graduate courses is needed prior to employment. The Department of History & Political Science recommends as curricula a major in history with a second major or minor and electives as the most advantageous undergraduate basis for a public-history career. Curriculum recommendations are available from the department chair.

Pre-Professional Programs

Although essentially a liberal arts college, the College of Arts & Sciences offers certain pre-professional curricula for students who plan to enter professional schools. For medical and paramedical curricula, Andrews University maintains a special relationship with Loma Linda University.
