Our program provides students with the education and training necessary to break into the public history field.

We emphasize not only theoretical education and proper methodology, but also practical skill, so our program allows students to seek out real world experiences, like internships, and other opportunities for professional development. Students have access to a variety of resources as they prepare themselves and their portfolio for post-grad work.
