Certificate in Historic Preservation

The Certificate in Historic Preservation is a 16 or 17-credit program consisting of four required courses and two electives from the student’s home degree program, chosen in consultation with the HISP advisor.

The certificate gives students obtaining degrees in related and/or affiliate programs the opportunity to become conversant with historic preservation history, methodology, current issues, and contemporary practice and to have that credential on their official university transcript.

The Certificate in Historic Preservation is available only to students already enrolled in a graduate degree program at the University of Maryland College Park.
