DescriptionGlendon undergraduate students may earn a Cross-Disciplinary Certificate in Public History concurrent with fulfillment of the requirements for a bachelor's degree. The Cross-Disciplinary Certificate provides students with an introduction to the theory, methods, and practice of work in historical, heritage, and cultural institutions, and a critical understanding of the production and presentation of historical knowledge for public audiences.

Public (or "Applied") History describes the theory, methodologies, and practices of professional historians who work outside academic institutions in various agencies and organizations devoted to historical research, preservation, and educational programming, including museums, historic sites, archives, galleries, government and non-government organizations, and online venues. It also encompasses the ways in which history is produced for and understood by public audiences in a wide range of venues including public school classrooms, television documentaries, popular history writing and family history albums. It is sustained by a large North American organization known as the National Council on Public History.
