MA in Material Culture & Public Humanities
This is a new cross-disciplinary degree with two interrelated emphases (material culture and public humanities), which share common intellectual issues and employment goals. This MA degree will produce graduates who will be able to interpret material culture (e.g., physical objects; historical artifacts) within informed historical/ cultural frameworks, so that they are prepared for a wide range of careers in museums, historical societies, and community and cultural organizations. Material culture is the study of material or physical objects, as well as the placement of those objects in critical, theoretical and historical perspectives as the products of distinct cultures. Public humanities bridges the divide between academia and the public by encouraging dialogue between scholars and communities on cultural and social issues.
