The Heritage Preservation MHP program from Georgia State University offers compelling opportunities to pursue careers relating 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 significance of our tangible and intangible heritage. Much of the coursework involves collaboration with community partners and cultural organizations to produce practical learning experiences that take place outside the traditional classroom setting. The MHP program uses Atlanta and the surrounding area as a living laboratory from which our students obtain the skills to become future leaders in the field.

The Heritage Preservation MHP program from Georgia State University attracts students from ages 21 to over 60, all with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests, creating an eclectic and energetic academic setting. Our students use their heritage preservation educations to teach, advocate, restore, interpret and plan for the preservation of historic resources and interpretations of history to a public audience.


Students in the program gain valuable internship experience and find jobs in a variety of local, state and national agencies and organizations, as well as in the private and non-profit sectors. Our graduates are prepared for professions in fields such as cultural resource planning and management, administration of historical sites, historical societies, commissions and museums, and historical archives and research positions in public and private agencies.
