Let's face it, privacy is dead in the contemporary world. We may as well expose our past for all to see.

So, if you like spicing up history with images, interviews, video and hands-on experiences... If you take your heritage with a side of basic restoration... If you dream in color, but primarily stick to hues of Palace Arms Red and Colonial Tavern Blue... You might be a public historian!

Apply today for the public history minor and start making history a public affair.
