M.A. in Public Humanities
Candidates for the M.A. in Public Humanities undertake a two-year program to gain the knowledge and skills needed for jobs in museums, historical societies, state and federal humanities and cultural resource agencies, and historic preservation and community cultural development organizations. Drawing on the resources across Brown University and at the Rhode Island School of Design, the program addresses a diverse range of organizations, media, and subject matter, combining courses in humanities disciplines with hands-on learning. Students are required to take Introduction to Public Humanities; Methods in Public Humanities; and one graduate-level seminar in American Studies, along with nine electives. In addition, all students undertake two practicums, generally one in the summer between their first and second year, and a second during the second year of coursework.
