The graduate certificate in Public History is a specialized program of study that trains students for careers in museums, archives, historical interpretation, and historic preservation. Students may pursue the certificate (1) in combination with a Master of Arts in History or a closely related field or (2) as an independent credential. Students enrolled in the program take seminars in history and electives in history and related fields. All students are required to complete an internship at a historical institution.
Students seeking the certificate as a stand-alone program should apply at http://louisville.edu/graduate/. Create an account. When asked to choose a program, select "Graduate - non-degree." On the next page, select "College of Arts and Sciences," then "Public History (CHI)." Materials for admission are two letters of recommendation, college transcripts, GRE scores and a personal statement regarding interest in the program. There is a $60.00 application fee.
Students enrolled in a M.A. program will need to follow the same admission procedure stated above at http://louisville.edu/graduate. Previously submitted materials will be considered. Therefore, you need only submit one additional faculty recommendation and a 500-word personal statement describing your interest in the program.
