About

The dual degree in Community Planning and Historic Preservation from University of Maryland combines course work from the Historic Preservation and Urban Studies and Planning programs to enable a student to complete both the Master of Historic Preservation and Master of Community Planning degrees with fewer credits than it would take to complete the two separately.

Overview

Students of the Community Planning and Historic Preservation program from University of Maryland are ideally prepared to practice at the intersection of planning and preservation, disciplines that have long had close ties. For example, the Maryland Historical Trust, Maryland's State Historic Preservation Office is housed with the state's planning department. Similarly, preservation is imbedded in the planning offices in Baltimore City, and county's such as Prince Georges and Montgomery. 

Graduates of this program are prepared to practice in either discipline (a strength in times of economic recession) and, more importantly, are able to bring their special knowledge and understanding to preservation planning issues in community's acrossthe state and nation.

Facilities and Special Resources

The School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation is ideally located between Washington, DC, and Baltimore and surrounded by a number of historic communities and a varied physical environment. The resulting opportunity for community planning and historic preservation is unsurpassed.
