Public History, Minor

Director: J. Patrick Mullins, Ph.D.

The interdisciplinary minor in public history allows students to examine the ways the historic method is applied outside of the classroom, including in museums and other cultural programs. For students seeking a career in public history, the minor better prepares them for advanced study in specialized programs. In addition to history courses, students can explore related disciplines such as anthropology and can take specialized courses in fields such as marketing, management or advertising. Students interested in this minor should see the public history adviser in the Department of History. As students select courses to meet the requirements for the Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC), they should pay close attention to the list of recommended courses for this minor.
