At UI, students can learn about public history through undergraduate and graduate coursework as well as through internships with community partners.

Our graduate public history initiative, History Corps, provides a laboratory for students and interns to practice project design and management, oral history, digital history, grant writing, and other skills associated with public history.

Faculty and students have collaborated with community partners on projects ranging from museum exhibits to legal briefs. Click some of the links on this page to explore!
