The Department of History offers the doctorate in partnership with the Center for Historic Preservation, the Albert Gore Research Center, and the Center for Popular Music, along with the Walker Library Media Studio for digital collections and initiatives. Interdisciplinary education is offered for specialized practice in historic preservation and cultural resource management, museum management, archival management, oral History, and public Archaeology.
