Baldwin Wallace University’s Public History Major is the first such major in the State of Ohio. The major in Public History is intended to prepare students for careers that involve presenting history to the general public. These students are trained to work in museums, archives, and historical societies. This major is intensively experiential: much of the coursework takes place in archives and local museums, and there is a required internship. Students will develop knowledge of history and art history, hone their skills of written and oral presentation, and apply those skills in the field using appropriate digital media. A passing score on the History Department Comprehensive Examination is required.

Minimum Credits Required: 45
