Students from other colleges and universities attend our NIAHD Year-long Collegiate Program which is a two semester program. They enroll in the Collegiate Program in Early American History, Material Culture and Museum Studies Program along with William and Mary students. They take four courses each semester including the required Core Course in Public History, the Field School in Public History which is a semester internship, plus a material culture field school. They choose their remaining courses from NIAHD elective classes. This program is open to both undergraduate and post-graduate students. Those who attend as post-graduates take classes as unclassified graduate students not enrolled in a degree-seeking program.
