An Interdisciplinary Public Heritage Curriculum for the Rio Grande Valley

Planning for a new interdisciplinary major in Public Heritage.

Faculty at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) seek support from NEH to develop a new, interdisciplinary bachelor degree (a BAIS) in Public Heritage that combines elements of traditional public history, cultural heritage studies, and museum studies programs and moves substantially beyond any of them. The proposed Public Heritage BAIS has two primary foci, Bilingual, Bicultural, Border Heritage and Integrated Cultural and Natural Heritage Landscapes. These foci build on the strengths of current faculty teaching and research activities across multiple disciplines, as well as existing experiential learning and institutional partnerships in the region. An NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grant will support a yearlong process during which the faculty committee will consult with external scholars and local collaborating institutional to finalize the design, structure, content, and expected student learning outcomes for the Public Heritage BAIS.
