Degrees Offered:

Master of Science in Historic Preservation

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The 54-credit graduate program is structured in layers, beginning with an initial core semester devoted to the analysis and documentation of historic sites, followed by an advanced studio-focused semester organized around the development of a preservation project. The second year highlights advanced analysis and conservation studies, historic interiors, project administration, and individual research.

Thesis proposals are defended in the third semester and completed as a multimedia project in the fourth semester of the program.

The organizational structure of the degree program and the curriculum have been developed with the guidance of the AIA, the ASLA, CSI, the regional professional community in preservation and design, as well as faculty from peer graduate programs.

Students are dual enrolled in Clemson University and the College of Charleston's Graduate School.
