Florida State University's Program in Historical Administration and Public History (HAPH) offers graduate students an opportunity to learn best practices in Public History; the collection, preservation, and interpretation of history with and for public audiences. Recognizing that Public Historians need specialized training to be effective in their chosen careers, HAPH blends theory with practice. Students complete a core set of courses in Historical Methods, Public History, Historic Preservation, Archives, and Digital History.
A major part of the program's coursework consists of practicums. Students in the HAPH program engage in the work of public history each semester; learning by actually doing history. On this website, you will find examples of the kinds of projects that HAPH classes have completed at FSU.
