About

The Public History concentration offers specialized education in one of five tracks: historic preservation and cultural resource management, museum management, archival management, oral history, and public archeology.

Overview

The phrase "public history" refers to the pursuit of historical understanding and interpretation in the public realm. Public historians work in a wide range of professional settings with public audiences of all ages. Places of employment for public historians include archives, museums, historic organizations, historical societies, historic sites, private consulting firms, and historical agencies at all levels of government.The Public History Program at MTSU is grounded in the discipline of history. Students receive an education that carefully balances academic historical methods and scholarship, the intellectual foundations and nature of public history, and professional development in several areas. To prepare students for professional practice, the program partners with a number of on-campus centers and programs, including the Center for Historic Preservation, Albert Gore Research Center, Center for Popular Music, and Walker Library Digital Initiatives. Our goal is to graduate students who are grounded in the basic research, writing, and analytical skills of the discipline; who identify with the professional aims of public history; and who are prepared for life-long learning in professional practice.
