Historic Preservation (Certificate)
Heather Fearnbach, coordinator
A Certificate in Historic Preservation is offered for students who are interested in the stewardship and future of historic buildings and structures. Students will develop skills in analysis and critical thinking as they investigate ways in which preservation affects communities.
Drawing upon the wealth of Salem’s historic setting, students will develop knowledge and skills in the history and theory of historic preservation; methods of documentation and recordation; issues related to sustainable design; and the ways in which history is portrayed to public audiences outside of academic settings.
