Public History Advanced Certificate
Public historians bring history to non-academic audiences. The College of Staten Island’s Advanced Certificate in Public History Program provides students with the practical, theoretical, intellectual, and professional knowledge required of public history professionals. This post-baccalaureate program is ideally suited to persons seeking to pursue or advance careers at museums, archives, archeological sites, media organizations, national parks, or other public history sites. Students complete five courses, including an extended internship at a museum, archive, or other history institution in New York City.
