The aim of this subject is to introduce students, through a practical placement in a public or private sector work environment (museum or gallery, heritage organisation, government department, municipal office, consultant historian, archive), to a range of conservation, ethical, communication and heritage concerns of public history.

Projects might be undertaken in such areas as: researching and producing a history program for radio; researching and designing components of a history exhibition; researching and writing a historical report for an archaeological survey, municipal office or government department.
