The job market in public history and historical tourism is growing rapidly. This is most easily seen in the emergence of specialized museums and living history centers, but also as a growing component of governmental services, including the national parks service and census bureau, local and state public space development and, most recently, through interactive web and app development. These occupations demand individuals who have an understanding of how to develop and apply historical knowledge and data in new and innovative ways. This certificate is specifically designed to provide students a foundation in the interaction between history and public consumption that will improve opportunities for employment.
