Historic Preservation

(60 Credit Hours)

Historic Preservation Master of Science

Historic preservation candidates participate in many hands-on preservation and conservation projects that complement a curriculum rich in history, theory and materials courses. They learn from architects, architectural historians, conservation specialists and other practitioners in the field of historic preservation. Individual studio spaces equipped with a program computer and the necessary software are provided for all students.

The curriculum is structured in sequential layers. At the end of the first two semesters, you’ll complete a summer internship related to your thesis topic. The second-year curriculum follows a professional track that culminates with a required thesis.

Coursework for this program, administered jointly with Clemson University, is offered entirely in Charleston.
