Program Details

This certificate program prepares students to become advocates for local preservation efforts and public history initiatives by working with non-profits and government agencies dedicated to the preservation, education, interpretation and outreach of local historical sites and organizations. They will also learn about historical archaeology, museum studies, material culture, the nomination process for the National Register of Historic Places, historical archives, digital history, and preservation efforts throughout the Northern Virginia region. Students can apply that knowledge through our internship program and entry-level employment opportunities at historic sites, museums, and parks.
