There is no better place to learn the processes and techniques of historic preservation than the living laboratory of Camden and nearby Philadelphia. The Historic Preservation Continuing Education Program at Rutgers-Camden is designed for those who desire to gain a deeper understanding of the vocabulary and discipline of historic preservation. It provides fundamentals of contemporary historic preservation practice as well as opportunities for in-depth studies. Students will learn from professionals working in the field to gain a more realistic perspective on how the tangible remains of our past can be integrated within current environments.
The program is open to anyone interested in historic preservation: members of historic preservation commissions, town planners, historic site administrators and volunteers, owners of old or historic buildings, architects, engineers, attorneys, students, and anyone else with an interest in preserving our built environment.
Any student or community member may register for any course or workshop. This is a non-degree, non-credit program, taught on a pass/fail basis. Continuing education credits earned may be applied toward a future certificate in historic preservation (in development).
The spring 2017 Architecture class and Preservation in Practice workshop offer American Institute of Architects (AIA) credits. The Preservation in Practice workshop also offers American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) CM credit and Law credits.
