Undergraduate Major and Minor in Folklore and Public Culture

COVID-related student resources:

The Folklore and Public Culture Program offers bachelor of arts, master of arts, and master of science degrees. An undergraduate minor is also available. Courses cover an extensive range of interdisciplinary topics: cultural heritage, ethnicity, subcultures, popular culture, performance, gender, film, religion, public folklore, and issues of diversity and globalization. Folklore and Public Culture graduates work in public and private agencies as educators, archivists, editors, arts and humanities consultants, museum curators, and festival planners.

Tykeson College and Career Advising is the academic and career advising destination for all students who:

  • Have not yet declared a major, referred to as exploring students
  • Are declared majors and minors in the College of Arts and Sciences
  • Are considering another major or exploring other majors
  • Want to explore career options and opportunities

Students with declared majors and minors in the College of Arts and Sciences should also continue to seek advice from faculty when they are looking for specific information about their chosen major or detailed information about their major department and its curricular and co-curricular offerings.

You are also welcome to contact Folklore and Public Culture Director Martha Bayless at, or to drop by her office hours (see for hours), for advising.
