HISTORIC PRESERVATION

Preservation is a field involved with the interpretation and conservation of historic sites, as well as with their renovation and adaptive use. An interdisciplinary approach to the investigation of buildings and landscapes, which addresses the complexity of material culture, has been adopted by the faculty of this program.

The College of Design offers a Master of Historic Preservation degree that provides opportunities for students to explore a variety of interests. Applications are invited not only from those with degrees in design—architects, interior designers, and landscape architects—but also from those who hold degrees in other disciplines and wish to pursue studies in historic preservation.

Admission Requirements

Requirements for admission include 1) a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university, 2) demonstration of ability in drawing, drafting, and photography, 3) three letters of recommendation and a personal essay, 4) a minimum score of 1000 on the verbal and quantitative sections and an acceptable score on the analytical section of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), 5) an interview with the faculty in the program, if possible, and 6) a B average GPA at the undergraduate level..

Requirements for the degree include the completion of core courses, advanced electives, an internship, and a final project—a total of 48 hours of credit.
