PHCE Degrees

Degree Programs

Public Heritage & Community Engagement offers two degree concentrations and a minor option that can supplement your current degree.

The Bilingual, Bicultural, Border Heritage Concentration emphasizes aspects of history and culture that have particular relevance to our dynamic region and beyond.

The Cultural and Natural Landscapes focuses on the relationship between the natural world and cultural practices, and the potential of natural resources for heritage endeavors.

The PHCE minor is designed to complement many students’ majors, providing them with tangible skills for community leadership and the ability to articulate the value of public heritage resources for themselves and their communities.

What can you do with a Public Heritage degree?

The Public Heritage & Community Engagement degree prepares students for a variety of careers related to the interpretation of historical and cultural information, cultural tourism, and non-profit management. Students will find placements with museums and historical societies, national government agencies such as the National Park Service, and within state and municipal government historical commissions and tourism bureaus.
