History 206: Introduction to Public History

MWF 11:30 to 12:20 -- Dr. Phillip Payne
Like the Civil War?  Like to get your hands dirty?  Thinking about a career in museums, archives, or an education-related field?  History 206 is the class for you!

What is public history?  It’s history all around us.  It’s about how people create, experience, and use history.  It’s on the web, in museums, in archives, in parks and all sort of places.

How will we do it?  Students in the Public History class actively create.  You will convert research into games, among other things.  Along the way, students learn:

  • Original Research
  • Presentation for the public
  • Gamification
  • Design Principles
