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 historians at work today. 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 (or 20 credits in total), including an extended internship at a museum, archive, or other history institution in New York City. Seminars and internships in Public History, Museum Studies, Archival Studies, Oral History, and the History of New York are among the courses available.
The Public History Program at the College of Staten Island invites applications from all persons with bachelor’s degrees and an enthusiasm for conveying history to public audiences. Museum docents and educators seeking further professional training in public history are encouraged to apply. Persons who are working toward or who already possess MA or Ph.D. degrees from other institutions are also welcomed.
