Public History Program

History majors often wonder what they can do with their degree other than teach in a traditional classroom. Public history courses offered at Northern Kentucky University give those students a new direction to take with their careers.

Public historians are trained to explain past human behavior in a variety of different contexts. It is history that is seen through:

  • Museum exhibits
  • Internet websites
  • Books and articles
  • Documentaries
  • Audio-visual presentations

This website has detailed information about our Master's Program in Public History. We also prepared an online brochure and the video below for interested students. is neither affiliated with the authors of this page nor responsible for its contents.
