The Master of Heritage Preservation (MHP) program offers attractive career opportunities related to the preservation and interpretation of cultural heritage. Based in the Department of History, the program and its faculty emphasize the theory and practice of protecting and communicating the importance of our tangible and intangible heritage. Much of the course work involves collaborating with community partners and cultural organizations to produce practical learning experiences that take place outside of the traditional classroom setting.

Currently, the department directs the University’s World Heritage Initiative,
The MHP program attracts students ages 21 to 60, all with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests, creating an eclectic and energetic academic environment. Students use their heritage preservation education to teach, defend, restore, interpret, and plan the preservation of historic resources and interpretations of history for a public hearing.
