Recent discussions regarding archival education have replaced the debate over administrative position with discussions on how to improve archival curricula in the universities. However, little has been said about how this curricula will be integrated with the educational programs of the allied professions. The author looks at the opportunities and problems of integrating with public history education programs. He examines three areas: how public history education can enhance archival education; problems between archivists and public historians that must change to ensure the success of educational integration; and key concepts to consider as part of public history programs' educational mission to better accommodate an improved archival curriculum.
