The Carleton MA in Public History is an innovative program designed to equip historians with an enhanced awareness of the specific challenges of applying historical knowledge and methodologies in the public sphere. A critical component is engagement with the field of public history and the work of public historians. Many courses involve collaborative projects with community partners. A collaborative specialization in Digital Humanities is also available. Faculty members work closely with history institutions, groups and activists in the region. Challenging yet flexible, the curriculum combines graduate courses in history with specialized courses that explore the practice and theory of public history. Paid internships are available in the summer between first and second year (subject to availability). Students hone their research, analytical and presentation skills through a major research project.
