The Master of Arts in Historic Preservation program at Goucher College allows you to tailor an individual program of study within a diverse selection of course offerings

Students must take eight required courses that provide the foundation for the individual focus, as well as successfully complete a thesis. Students may select from six elective courses, propose their own independent study course, and, with the director’s permission, take a course in the allied M.A. Cultural Sustainability program.

All entering students take HP 601 Fundamental Concepts of Heritage in their first year, with exceptions at the discretion of the program director. While it is recommended that all required courses are completed before taking electives, it is not required. A total of 38 credits is required for graduation. Students must take at least one course per semester to remain in the program. A maximum of three courses per semester is allowed. Students have a maximum of five years to complete all program requirements.
