The College of Architecture and Planning together with the Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers a graduate certificate in historic preservation. The certificate can be earned as part of an MArch, MLA, MURP or an MA in history. It requires a total of 18 semester hours.

Certificate Requirements

Total: 6 Hours

These are core courses on preservation theory and practice from the architect and planner’s perspective of intervening through design and regulation and from the historian’s perspective of how the past might guide the future.

A pre-approved thesis or studio (6 semester hours) is required.

Students choose their remaining courses from a selection in the following categories:

  • History of architecture, landscape architecture or historic places (3 semester hours)
  • Preservation methods (3 semester hours), including preservation technology, documentation of sites and structures, visual research methods and other subjects.

Students are encouraged but not required to take an internship in preservation.

Preservation certificate students work out with their advisor a selection of courses appropriate to their needs and the requirements of their degree program.
