Master of Science in Historic Preservation

Offered jointly with Clemson University, this full-time master’s degree program leads you through a curriculum providing professional training in historic preservation. The structure of the program has been developed after looking at the most successful national programs and in consultation with the regional professional community in preservation and design in order that the coursework directly relate to the vital and topical issues that professionals in this field are actively engaged in.

The program is offered entirely in Charleston, yet graduates earn a diploma from both the College of Charleston and Clemson University. In addition to utilizing the resources of both campuses, students have access to a variety of locations around Charleston and the Carolina Lowcountry that provide ideal field laboratories. These locations include the Charleston Museum, the Historic Charleston Foundation, the Preservation Society of Charleston, the American College of the Building Arts, the Warren Lasch Conservation Lab and Drayton Hall, a National Historic Trust Site, as well as numerous other sites.
