The graduate certificate in Historic Preservation is now available to both graduate students and practicing professionals. Certificate students have a choice of three areas of concentration: preservation and design; preservation and economic development; and preservation and planning. The certificate requires 12 credit hours, and is a great way to gain an advantage in an increasingly competitive job market. The certificate consists of two core courses, and two courses from the area of concentration. The graduate certificate may be earned concurrently with a master’s degree in any other field, such as architecture, interiors, history, anthropology, engineering, or business. It may also be earned by professionals who already possess a bachelor’s degree in another field. Previous design experience or education is not a requirement for acceptance into the certificate program. Knowledge of the values and legal framework that drives preservation decisions is useful to numerous professions in today’s world. Certificate students will learn preservation principles, tools, and techniques that will allow them to apply their base knowledge within a historic context.
