The History Department offers a Graduate Certificate in Public History.
Students pursue challenging, interdisciplinary coursework in addition to their Master’s education in History, Education, or other related fields. Upon completion of the program, receive a certificate recognizing their training in and understanding of public history.
To qualify for the certificate, students must complete 12 credits of graduate level coursework in History, with no less than 9 of these credits chosen from the department’s public history offerings.
Up to 6 credits of the certificate may be double-counted towards another degree.
