BA with Public History Courses

Undergraduate Work in Public History​

Undergraduate students are welcome to take Public History courses to explore academic and career possiblities in this fast-growing field.  Students should consult with their major advisor and a member of the Public History faculty on how best to incorporate Public History courses in their History degree program.

Undergraduate students considering a career in Public History may take any Public History course. We especially encourage students to take one of the following three courses:

  • HIST 4234, Introduction to Public History
  • HIST 4232, Historic Preservation
  • HIST 4231, History in Museums


CU Denver's History Department offers Public History undergraduate courses. Whether or not students focus on Public History as undergraduates, they are welcome to apply to the CU Denver MA graduate program in history, which offers a major and minor in Public History.

For further information, inquiries should be addressed to either:

  • Professor Tom Noel - Director of Public History and Preservation - (303) 315-1783 or
  • Professor Rebecca Hunt - Director of Public History and Museum Studies - (303) 315-1788​ or
