Where Will You Take Your Degree?

The job market in public history can be tight, and jobs tend to go to graduates of well-regarded programs who can demonstrate meaningful academic preparation and extensive experience in the field. Our graduates boast both. Small seminars give them grounding in history, theory, and strategy. Field experiences, gained through courses, internships and volunteering, offer them the professional focus and network they’ll need.

Our students have found employment in agencies, organizations, archives, and businesses across the United States. In the last three years, graduates have found employment in the following areas and institutions:
