Historic preservation is a multidisciplinary field that cuts across the design fields, the social sciences and the humanities. Preservationists today must grapple with social, historical and cultural issues in order to work with a broad range of professionals in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
In order to achieve this goal the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation at the University of Maryland draws from the fields of American Studies, Anthropology, Architecture, Historic Preservation, History, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Studies and Planning. The program trains preservation professionals who will be familiar with the different disciplines and approaches that make up contemporary preservation practice.
Maryland's Historic Preservation program draws on the extraordinary resources of the state and the Washington/Baltimore region. The program enjoys relationships with several prominent national, state, regional and local preservation organizations. Guest lecturers include the field's leading professionals from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the National Park Service, US/ICOMOS, the Maryland Historical Trust, Preservation Maryland and Prince George's Heritage. On the University campus, the National Trust Library provides an unmatched archive and research resource.
