Certificate in Landscape Preservation

The Certificate in Landscape Preservation prepares students to work as independent consultants or as part of a nonprofit or government agency team. Students will learn how to document, preserve, interpret, and manage landscapes of historic or cultural value, from historic gardens to agricultural sites.

Landscape preservation is a multidisciplinary field. It involves land-use history, public policy and law, horticulture, archaeology, ethnography, and urban and public policy history. Lectures, workshops, and roundtable discussions by professionals in the field will complement the formal course structure. Students who are already working in historic preservation can take the individual courses that meet their needs.
