Master of Historic Preservation

 MHP Collage 1

Since 1982, the Master of Historic Preservation (MHP) program has prepared students for broad-based careers in the conservation and management of historic resources in both the built and natural environments. The two-year MHP degree is structured to develop versatile, competent, and highly motivated professionals who can perceive preservation opportunities in the broadest sense and develop strategies ensuring the protection and use of cultural resources as a part of the fabric of urban and rural environments. 

The MHP program admits approximately 15-20 applicants each year. Students from all undergraduate disciplines are encouraged to apply. The program has admitted students with a variety of backgrounds ranging from history and anthropology to nursing, agriculture, advertising, and theater. An accelerated MHP degree, a joint Juris Doctor and MHP, and a Historic Preservation certificate are also available.

Prospective students interested in the MHP program are encouraged to find more information in the links below and visit campus to tour and meet our professors. To schedule a tour, contact Program Coordinator James Reap
