Public History: Design and Exhibition

In this course, students will develop and install a significant exhibit project in the community beyond Washington & Jefferson’s campus. Students will be responsible for developing a course syllabus, collaborating with local partners and archives in the region and beyond, conducting research, managing a substantial budget, and developing a professional-level exhibit for a community partner. This course will require substantial independent work, collaboration with colleagues, and engagement with professional organizations around the nation. Topics will vary based on community partner interest.
