University of Pennsylvania Graduate Program in Historic Preservation

"In 1981, the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation at the University of Pennsylvania was established in response to the rising need to provide a truly integrated curriculum of advanced study for architects, landscape architects, planners, conservators, historians, archaeologists, curators, managers, and other preservation practitioners interested in professional careers in building and site conservation and cultural resource management.The program provides students with a foundation in history, theory, technology, and praxis, with additional courses selected to structure an area of emphasis within the field of preservation.These areas are Building and Material Conservation, and Cultural Heritage Management, and may be pursued for the two-year Master of Science degree and one-year Certificate. ... The two emphases of the program encompass a broad range of career options focused on historic monuments and sites, house museums and collections, cultural landscapes, archaeological sites, and urban and regional areas. An Advanced Certificate in Architectural Conservation provides an additional opportunity for those who have completed the Master of Science degree with an emphasis in technology." (from website)
