Interested in Public History?

Public History is a vital and important branch of History. Just as History professors do, public historians conduct research, but they make their scholarship available to the public in places such as museums, historic sites, and archives. As the National Council on Public History’s website explains, “Public historians come in all shapes and sizes. They call themselves historical consultants, museum professionals, government historians, archivists, oral historians, cultural resource managers, curators, film and media producers, historical interpreters, historic preservationists, policy advisers, local historians, and community activists, among many, many other job descriptions.”
