What is public history?
History made practical
Public historians bring history to general audiences outside of academia. Working in museums, archives, archaeological sites, media organizations, corporations, government bodies, community groups, and many other places, public historians undertake wide-ranging professional activities that include museum curating, oral interviewing, archival collection, documentary making, and historical preservation.
This advanced certificate program prepares graduate students for successful and rewarding careers in public history. Students enrolled in this program improve their academic expertise, enhance their historical knowledge, and learn professional skills and methods. Additionally, they gain invaluable practical experience working at one of the many cultural institutions, museums, archives, and historic sites in New York City through our internship program.
