New Double Dawg Program for Classics and Historic Preservation

The new Classics AB/Historic Preservation MHP Double Dawgs program is an excellent pathway for students interested in the architecture of the built environment, history, and preservation and opens the gateway to various PhD programs in the humanities.


The MHP program is the terminal degree in its field and prepares students for work in the study, preservation, and stewardship of significant historical sites. Aspiring historians, architects, city planners, engineers, non-profit workers, and designers will find the skills of historic preservation invaluable.


The Classics AB program studies the material, intellectual, and religious aspects of the classic cultures of the Greeks and Romans. An education in Classics prepares students for entry into a variety of fields including history, art, and language as well as sciences such as archeology and anthropology.
