The Certificate in Public History is intended for students who already have or are currently pursuing academic majors or minors in history, art history, archeology, or anthropology and who intend careers in public history. The certificate assumes that the student has already mastered the content necessary to work in public history but wants to acquire skills to function more effectively as a presenter of history to the public.
Students may enroll as non-degree students and complete the certificate without having to take the requirements for the Bachelor’s Degree. The prerequisite for non-degree admission is an academic major, minor, or 15 hours of coursework in History, Art History, Anthropology, or Archeology. More than one half of the coursework must be completed at Baldwin Wallace University.
Minimum Credits Required: 21-23
