This POE is designed to assist students who seek a career in public history. It consists of 4 segments: a focus upon historical studies; museum studies, and two concentrations reflective of student interests. Students may select concentrations in art history, studio art, communication, or business. Students may develop an alternative concentration with the permission of the program advisor. Students must complete a capstone senior project and take an internship. As in any POE, students must complete a minimum of 18 upper division credits.
