Preparing a new generation of historians for careers beyond
academe, St. John’s has launched a graduate program in
Public History that combines advanced historical research with
technology, electronic media and their use in managing public and
private information collections.
The 33-credit Master of Arts degree program is part of a new,
interdisciplinary initiative by faculty from across the 18 academic
departments in St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the
University’s oldest division. They form the new Committee on Public
History, Museum and Archive Studies (PHMAS).
Classes begin in the Fall 2012, semester. Those interested are
invited to apply
