About

The Master of Science in Historic Preservation from University of Colorado Denver is designed to accommodate the background and needs of both those students with substantial experience and those new to the field. 

Overview

The course of study is for students seeking training in spatial, technical and design aspects of the broader field; it encompasses architecture, cultural landscapes, preservation, planning, building technology, project management, documentation, interpretation and representation.

Our Master of Science in Historic Preservation from University of Colorado Denver graduated its first class in 2011.
