Catalog 2010-2012

Public History

The University of Northern Iowa makes available, in addition to traditional programs, the opportunity for students to earn program certificates. Program certificates provide an alternative to programs leading to a degree, a major, or a minor; they certify that an individual has completed a program approved by the university. For information on the following program certificate, contact the Department of History or the Office of the Registrar, which serves as the centralized registry.

This certificate is available to history majors and non-history majors who have completed a prescribed course of study within public history. This program exposes students to the array of opportunities available in the fields of public history and an opportunity to add an experiential component to their academic education. Individual curricula will be defined in consultation with the program's director.
