A Master of Historic Preservation degree from the University of Maryland responds to the complex needs of the historic preservation profession. It combines a broad reach of advanced individual and collaborative course work with research and practical experience gained through a summer internship. Subjects such as public policy, economic development, historical interpretation and cultural diversity are emphasized alongside traditional preservation topics such as documentation, historical scholarship, preservation planning and design. The goal is to gain knowledge and experience in decision-making, management and conservation. These are tools for preserving material culture for the future while finding better community uses of the built environment in the present.
