Minor in Public History

A joint program offered by Huron University College, King's University College and Western University, public history explores how history is understood by and communicated to the public. Explore the many ways to communicate about history: museums, archives, historical sites, in films, fiction, on the web, and in policy making. History is all around us, and there are many different ways to share it. Students take courses from each of the institutions to earn the minor.

The Minor in Public History is the first of its kind in Canada at the undergraduate level. It is a great introduction to the field and excellent preparation for Western University's MA in Public History. Public History is built upon a blend of theory, historiography, hands-on practice, community based learning and community mentoring.
