Master of Science in Historic Preservation College of Design

Graduate Minors

Graduate students in other programs may take a minor program in HSPH.  They will gain familiarity and experience in the field of heritage studies as it is framed in our program - prioritizing diversity, interdisciplinarity, and engagement - and will better qualified in seeking employment.  In particular, for PhD students in traditionally academically-oriented disciplines which are undergoing transitions in employment opportunities towards non-academic sectors, this minor may offer a valuable opportunity to demonstrate professional experience and competence.  In other words, this graduate minor can significantly contribute to the transition of such disciplines to new employment realities.

For doctoral degree students:

  • 12 credits required
  • Two required seminars: Who Owns the Past? (HSPH 8001) and Race and Indigeneity in Heritage Representation (HSPH 8003)
