Historic Preservation Planning

In Historic Preservation Planning, students learn the tools and techniques used by preservationists to identify, document, protect and sustainably reuse the historic built environment. Projects will involve interaction with local government, planning, and preservation groups. This course will allow students to gain a practical understanding of how to apply concepts learned in other courses, such as Historic Preservation Law, Documentation I and II, and American Architectural History I and II. Prerequisite: Enrollment in the program or consent of instructor.


Historic Preservation Planning has been offered by the Department for a number of years. While I have adopted the general ideas of the course and learning objectives created in prior iterations, I have revised the course in its live format and have created an asynchronous online version for the Canvas learning management system as well.
