Historic Preservation Curriculum

Our built environment defines who we are. That environment is our past and our future. In the Historic Preservation program, students will learn how to document and preserve historically significant structures, landscapes and resources. Students will study how landmark buildings, as well as more modest structures and neighborhoods, express our heritage and character, and why we should preserve this heritage.

Historic Preservation students have the opportunity to study a wide range of historic preservation topics including the research and documentation of historic sites; preservation finance, law, and planning; preservation practice; restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse of historic sites; and preservation public policy. In addition, students study building design and traditional building technologies, and they have the opportunity to explore other subjects through open electives. This breadth of inquiry allows students to pursue a course of study tailored to their own interests and career objectives. The Design Studies Practicum helps students connect their studies to applications in the workplace.

The BAC is a member of the National Council for Preservation Education (NCPE). The BDS in Historic Preservation meets the standards for degree granting programs established by NCPE.
