Keeping the past present...
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.
