What Students
Are Saying

The public history program at NCSU is uniquely valuable for archive students because it combines a traditional history background
with hardcore archival theory and practice. Students learn simultaneously about archives from both ends - as users and managers,
enabling them to envision archives as a whole and preparing them for a variety of roles in the profession
