Projects

Mercyhurst public history students are challenged in their senior year to apply what they have learned in their coursework to a public history project of their choosing. Among the projects students over the past few years have produced: architectural/visual and oral histories of Erie churches and Erie schools, a documentary film advocating historic preservation in northwest Pennsylvania, a community history web site, and walking tours of Erie Civil War sites and historic places associated with labor history in Reading, Pennsylvania.
