Historic Preservation Certificate
From TTU College of Architecture
The College of Architecture’s Master of Science in Architecture with a certificate in Historic Preservation (HP) is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the documentation and preservation of historic architecture. There are three major areas of faculty interest in the Historic Preservation program — architecture history and theory, preservation and preservation technology.
The Historic Preservation program consists of 36 hours of course work covering the concepts, principles, and techniques of architecture preservation, history and documentation. In addition to the course work the student will be required to produce a thesis (6 hours). A minor or certificate of specialization can be obtained by graduate students in other programs by taking the 15 hours of core courses in the Historic Preservation program.
The college is committed to educate and prepare graduate students to play a significant role in historic preservation. This program recognizes the need for a comprehensive understanding of the theory and practicum of historic preservation. To satisfy these needs, the graduate program presents a balanced alignment of courses, as well as opportunities to participate in on-site research across and professional internships.
Current TTU students should complete this form and contact the Program Director for admission into the Certificate Program.
