Practitioners of Public History document, preserve, interpret
and make cultural resources accessible. Applicants are
expected to demonstrate a strong background in the humanities and
social sciences, familiarity with media technologies and a
commitment to community service. Given the growing merger of
issues relating to collecting information and collections
accessibility in libraries, archives and museums, students in the
program also are encouraged to pursue a Master of Science degree
from St. John's American Library Association accredited Division of
Lbrary Science. An Archival specialization is available.
