Kennesaw State University’s public history certificate program trains students to think critically about the public presentation of history and culture and helps students develop tangible skills that will enable them to pursue graduate study in a number of fields as well as professional or avocational work at historic and cultural sites. Classroom and fieldwork combine to deliver both theoretical understanding of memory and history and practical experience in historic preservation, community documentation, museums, and cultural program development.

To be awarded the Certificate in Public History students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in certificate requirements. The certificate is awarded with the completion of a bachelor’s degree or, if the student already has a bachelor’s degree, after the successful completion of the certificate program.
