Historic Preservation Planning

Format: Campus

Program Description:

This program prepares students for work in the history and preservation of buildings in a variety of urban and rural contexts. Two years of course work normally are needed. Students are required to complete sixty credits, including a six-credit thesis. A basic core of three preservation courses and two semesters of course work in American architectural history is also required; if not satisfied by prior undergraduate work, it should be completed in the first year at Cornell. Students are strongly encouraged to seek summer employment in the field; an internship might provide the student with a thesis topic. The program receives inquiries from public agencies and private firms. For an application, visit the Graduate School's website at Cornell University.
