Historic Preservation and Community Planning

The Historic Preservation and Community Planning program approaches the subjects of historic preservation, architectural and urban design, planning, and architectural and urban history as a group of related disciplines that together address the management of change in the built environment from a design perspective. The program is grounded in the visually oriented environment of the Department of Art History and the School of the Arts, yet is still flexible enough to allow students to bring in other courses and experiences through its interdisciplinary curriculum. There are also a number of changing special courses offered by adjunct faculty drawn from experts in the preservation community in Charleston. Recent offerings include: Autocad and Photoshop for Preservationists, Building Pathology, Historic American Interiors, and The Classical Tradition in Architecture.
