Public History Minor
The public history minor is designed to provide students with the skills to work in the public as an historian. Public historians work in museums, archives, libraries, historic associations, historic houses, parks, zoos, arboretums, businesses, corporations, and in public planning of urban and environmental landscapes. Public historians work on translating historical research to the broad public audience.
The minor is composed of five courses of 4 credits each, including an introduction to public history course and an internship, HIST 691 Internship, at a local historical site.
