CCSU’s Public History Program specializes in preparing students for careers in museum interpretation, local and community history and educational programming. On consultation with the Public History Coordinator, students may also design specialized programs in such areas as public policy, documentary filmmaking, archives, museum administration and historic preservation. Potential students interested in designing a specialized program should consult with the Public History Program Coordinator prior to application.
The program welcomes both recent college graduates and nontraditional students seeking to enter the public history field. Currently, most public history students pursue the degree on a part-time basis and evening classes allow them to combine work and school. Admission to the program usually requires a B.A. in history or a related field. Prospective students who do not meet this requirement, however, should consult with the program director to learn of alternative routes.
