The dual Master's Degree in Historic Preservation and American Studies joins diverse perspectives on social justice, diversity, inclusion, culture, heritage, and built environment history to create a deepened interdisciplinary study of public humanities and historic preservation in America. The program seeks to broaden perspectives, increase job opportunities, and promote research in both fields. The uniquely flexible program can be completed in as little as 57 credits or 2 and ½ years. This new degree expands a long-standing collaboration between the two programs to promote dialogue while pursuing equity in both the built environment and cultural heritage. Students in both fields will learn from seminars, readings courses, and community-engaged coursework that cultivates this broad skill set.
