Public History Degree
If you’ve ever walked across a battlefield, or stood outside the gates of a concentration camp – or reached out to touch a name you know on the Vietnam Memorial, or read a letter sent from a soldier in Europe back to his wife on the homefront, you know what it’s like to encounter history in a tangible way. The people who preserve history and help us understand its meaning are public historians. ACU’s newest track, the B.A. in Public History, will inspire you to share your love of history with others as a museum curator, archivist or other public history interpreter. Courses in this degree are deeply experiential, combining guided study of the theory and scholarship of public history with firsthand engagement with historic sites, libraries, museums, parks and archives.
