Program Spotlight: UVic’s Master of Arts in Public History

public history ma

 

As many of you know, one of the primary objectives of Unwritten Histories is to shine a light on the teaching and learning of history. With that in mind, I’m proud to introduce a new series here on Unwritten Histories, called “Spotlight.” In each post, I will highlight a different history program or department. Canada is home to a number of amazing history programs and departments, but it’s difficult to understand the differences between them just by looking at their websites. So, in this series, I will be taking readers behind the scenes, so to speak, and talking about the features that each program or department has to offer. While I will be concentrating on Canadian universities to begin with, I do hope to expand this to American and international universities as well, and eventually to also include related programs and departments (like archaeology, museum studies, etc…).

As many of you also know, my Ph.D is from UVic, so it makes sense that I should start with my alma mater! In this first “Spotlight” post, we’re going to be talking with my former supervisor, Dr. Lynne Marks, about the new Master of Arts program in Public History, premiering September 2017.
