    “Professor Jeanine Mazak-Kahne immediately made herself available as a mentor and has consistently been helpful to me,” says Joshua McConnell, ’13 MA, outreach/community educator and archivist, Altoona Area Public Library. “She’s assisted me on several projects since I graduated and helped me find an IUP student intern to help with a large records reorganization project, which was a big success.”

    Scholar-teacher model and hands-on instruction

    Our faculty members embrace the scholar-teacher model. When our professors enter the classroom they bring the world of history with them. Practical, hands-on activities enhance conventional teaching methods. All faculty members have completed doctoral degrees and provide the personal attention that master’s students request to assure a smooth transition to the workforce.

    All of our public history classes engage the community in the preservation and presentation of the local and regional past. Our students learn the values of civic engagement and the responsibility that public historians have not only to their profession, but also to the communities in which they live and work.
