Historic Preservation Planning

MA in Historic Preservation Planning

The Historic Preservation Planning prepares students for professional work in the preservation and use of our physical heritage. Sudents enter the program with humanities or social science degrees, and some have already worked in architecture or areas related to historic preservation planning. Courses address theory and practice as well as the economic, legal, and social ramifications of preservation. Students must complete two semesters of course work in American architecture history (unless you studied the subject as an undergraduate). During the first year, students take courses in the economics of neighborhood conservation, urban history, real estate development, building materials conservation, preservation law, and community-assisted design. A workshop takes students to the field to conduct a historic resources survey in a nearby city, town, or village.
