Historic Preservation - Certificate
Based in the College of Architecture, the Certificate in Historic Preservation is open to students in a graduate degree program at Texas A&M University. This cross-disciplinary program draws on strong discipline-based academic programs that prepare graduates to further their career goals. The certificate assumes that historic preservation is a cross-disciplinary field, and the program is designed to ensure that students gain a sense of mutual respect for others in the field, and appropriate awareness, understanding, and ability within a specific body of knowledge.
The student must complete a MINIMUM of fifteen (15) credit hours of coursework with historic preservation content. The courses MUST be applicable toward a graduate degree at Texas A&M University, but need not necessarily be included on the student's degree plan.
