The Public History Initiative trains undergraduate students to be active participants in researching and communicating history. Through hands-on internships, research-focused courses, and collaboration with community partners, students learn to communicate with broad audiences and apply their historical knowledge outside of the university.
We produce cutting-edge public history. Our work focuses on evidence-based and community-informed research and outreach.
We contribute to history education. Through the National Center for History in the Schools, we collaborate with K-12 educators to get the most recent history research into school classrooms.
