Ursuline - where classroom theory meets real life experience.
This is an interdisciplinary degree program where you'll immerse yourself in the community guided by mentors. Courses actively involve you in Historic Preservation as you document buildings and historic sites, then work with community and government leaders to prepare plans for the preservation, redevelopment and adaptive reuse of those sites. You will then write the grant applications needed to fund those planned projects. Finally, you will document each portion of the process to provide a historic record for the community and future generations.
Ursuline College is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
