Public and Applied History Certificate

Return to Social Sciences Return to: Social Sciences

The Certificate in Public and Applied History offers a curriculum grounded in sound historical scholarship but that includes experiential and collaborative work in the community, and recognizes that students trained as historians may apply their skills and knowledge in a wide range of professions outside of academia.  The Johnstown region provides abundant opportunities for the training and employment of public historians.  It has been a rich laboratory for experiments in industrial development and post-industrial transition, environmental rehabilitation, historic preservation, and sustainable development.  Our students can learn from and participate in these efforts.  This certificate will provide them the background, skills, and opportunity.
