HI 461 Public History (3)
This course is designed to give students an opportunity to develop & apply history-related marketable skills such as editing, archival and record management, preparation of documentaries, docudramas, exhibits and radio broadcasts, preservation (park services), genealogy, museology, oral history, and corporate research. Depending on student interest, several of these aspects will be developed using campus and off-campus facilities. Implicit in the practice of public history is strong ability in writing and research.
