Public History faculty routinely incorporate community-engaged projects into their course syllabi. Students receive training in a range of research methods such as (depending on the class/instructor) oral history, podcasting, digital archiving, exhibit curation, historic preservation, and laser-scanning. A full list of faculty-directed Public History projects, many with class project tie-ins, can be found here.

Undergraduates enrolled in upper-level professionalization courses — HIS 3600 Professionalizing History Majors and HIS 4150 History and Historians —  are introduced to Public History as a potential career path, with guest speakers from a range of fields (Historic Preservation, Planning, Law, etc). Other courses — HIS 3090 Introduction to Historic Preservation, ASH 3930 Digital Storytelling, and HIS 3081 History Museums and Digital Spaces– immerse students in more Public History theory and practice.

Partnerships with community organizations, businesses, non-profits, and local governments give UCF students the opportunity to make lasting connections and gain real-world experience. Students can choose from a wide range of internship opportunities, organized around specialized skills training and potential career paths: digital archiving, museum administration, historic preservation and restoration, exhibit curation, museum education, podcasting, journal editing, oral history, etc.

Students who enroll in the M.A. History degree program have the option of choosing the Public History track with an eye toward specialized training for careers within and beyond the academy. Graduate course offerings in Public History include:
