Public History

Keeping the past present...

Gouldin Intern Fine Arts Museum Margaret Gouldin, intern at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Spring 2011

At Longwood University, we offer one of the finest undergraduate public history concentrations currently available nationwide. We provide a faculty with experience in numerous public history fields: archival administration, museum work, archeology, historic preservation, and art history.  Our students gain a firm foundation in history while also pursuing courses in archaeology, art history, and web design.  Students concentrating in public history also complete a three-credit, 120-hour  internship, ensuring them practical, real world experience that prepares them for the job market.   As a result, our graduates have successfully gained jobs with the National Park Service and Virginia State Parks; in art and historic museums; in federal, state, and local archives; and with organizations dedicated to historic preservation.
