M.S. in Architecture - Heritage Conservation & Preservation

The M.S. in Architecture-Heritage Conservation and Preservation offers courses and research opportunities in the study of the preservation of historic buildings, districts, and landscapes, as well as the design and management of cultural heritage sites. The program explores heritage on several distinct but related levels.  It examines the materiality of heritage resources through documentation, diagnosis, and the design of treatment interventions.  It also encourages critical analysis and assessment of the cultural values that underlie and define preservation policies, laws, and professional norms. Through fieldwork, case studies, and courses that investigate regional, national, and global heritage, the program focuses on the philosophy, policy, technology, economics, and social implications of heritage preservation.
