The UCF History Department's Regional Initiative for Collecting the History, Experiences, and Stories (RICHES™) of Central Florida at the University of Central Florida was awarded a Common Heritage grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
A video podcast produced by UCF students and faculty won the Florida Historical Society's 2015 Hampton Dunn Internet Award. The award is given each year to the best digital project that represents outstanding programs and expands our knowledge of Florida history.
Users can now use tools from the RICHES Mosaic Interface to analyze and annotate items. The free interface is an interactive digital collection of Florida's history that offers a searchable database with access to images, documents, podcasts, oral histories, films, and visualizations.
UCF's Online Bachelor of Arts in History scored third in a recent university ranking by TheBestSchools.org. Rankings were based on quality of program, types of courses provided and faculty strength, as well as school awards, rankings, and reputation.
