Historic Preservation Department offering Graduate Certificates
March 19, 2014 | School
UK/CoD Department of Historic Preservation is now offering graduate certificates. Students have a choice of four areas of concentration: Preservation and Design; Preservation and Economic Development; Preservation and Planning; and Rural Preservation. The certificates require 12 credit hours.
Graduate certificates can be earned concurrently with a master's degree in another field. The additional certification in a focused field of study can give architecture and interiors graduates an advantage in the competitive job market, as well as those studying history, anthropology, engineering, archeology, and landscape architecture.
"Knowledge of the values and legal framework that drives preservation decisions is useful to numerous professions in today's world," said Dr. Allison Carll-White, Chair of the Department of Historic Preservation. "Students will be exposed to preservation principles, tools, and techniques that will allow them to apply their base knowledge within a historic context."
