Degree Awarded: CERT
Program Webpage: http://louisville.edu/history/ph.html
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 MA 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 also required to complete an internship at a historical institution.
Students seeking the certificate as a stand-alone program should go to http://louisville.edu/graduate/apply and select the A&S non-degree seeking option and then the Public History program. Materials for admission are two letters of recommendation, college transcripts, GRE scores and a personal statement regarding their interest in the program. There is a $60.00 application fee.
Students who are already enrolled in the History Masters program will need to follow the same admission procedure stated above at http://louisville.edu/graduate/apply. Your previous 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.
