Historic Preservation

Part of the Department of Architecture, the Historic Preservation graduate program offers you the opportunity for advanced study within the rich resources of a major public university combined with the benefits of the oldest public Master of Architecture program in New England, a leading Public History program, and significant faculty in areas of material science, landscape architecture, and building construction technology. You’ll benefit from a wealth of regional places and institutions and focus your degree through different tracks, such as techniques for the care and rehabilitation of old places, ways to advance advocacy for saving historic buildings and landscapes, and philosophical and legal frameworks for developing new policies for making preservation a partner in the development of sustainable, beautiful, and just communities.
