The Heritage Conservation (Certificate NDP) program from University of Arizona is:
- Interdisciplinary, teaching holistic problem-solving within an integrated environment of natural and cultural resources including the disciplines of anthropology, archaeology, architecture, art history, history, landscape architecture, materials science, and planning; and
- Inter-institutional, promoting collaborative engagement between public and private institutions with a curriculum incorporating community service as a method of learning.
The learning outcomes of the Graduate Certificate in Heritage Conservation are intended to balance theory and practice, as well as research and outreach, including:
- Awareness of geographic, cultural, technological, economic, and political factors that shape the built environment; of building traditions of cultural groups and historic periods that define the Greater Southwest.
- Understanding of heritage conservation terms, concepts, and philosophical foundations; of legal, regulatory, and economic development tools; of treatment standards for historic properties; of cultural resource management business and ethical principles.
- Ability to conduct research using primary and secondary information resources; to survey, document, and communicate cultural artifacts, buildings, sites, districts, and cultural landscapes according to professional (Secretary of Interior) standards; to analyze building construction systems, components, and materials to make conservation treatment recommendations; to interpret the meaning of built environments to a larger audience.
