MA Public History

University of Victoria

Public History trains you in history research methods, and how to communicate the rich stories from the past to the widest possible audience.

This program teaches you how to share history with the public and history research methods. You’ll complete a term in a co-op work experience that prepares you to work in public history organizations such as archives, government and tourist sites.

You’ll create a project that blends this dynamic education into a work of public history. Past projects include websites, podcasts, documentary films and museum exhibits.
