Master of Historic Preservation

MHP students

The Master of Historic Preservation (MHP) program admits approximately 15-20 students each year. Students from all undergraduate disciplines are encouraged to apply. The program has admitted students with backgrounds ranging from history and anthropology to nursing, agriculture, and theater.

The Historic Preservation program prepares students for broad-based careers in the conservation and management of historic resources in both the built and natural environments. The two-year Master of Historic Preservation degree is structured to develop versatile, competent, and highly motivated professionals who can perceive preservation opportunities in the broadest sense and who can develop strategies ensuring the protection and use of cultural resources as a part of the fabric of urban and rural environments. An accelerated MHP degree, a joint Juris Doctor and MHP, and a Historic Preservation certificate are also available.
