Public History Projects & Internships

As part of their methodological training, Public History students participate in community-based projects that serve a dual purpose. The projects help an organization fulfill its mission while also giving students an opportunity to hone much needed work skills.

One local museum expanded an exhibit in conjunction with students in Dr. Brian Hackett's Exhibits in Museums and Historic Sites course. To read an article about the project, click here.
