Abstract: Historic preservation at U.S. universities has been traditionally taught at architectural schools in the context of art, architecture and history. To date, approximately 45 graduate programs for historic preservation studies exist in the U.S. with seven programs awarding doctoral degrees. There is no graduate program in historic preservation in the U.S. focusing on engineering aspects of historic preservation despite increasing needs, and only on-the-job experience and/or professional training are available to meet those needs. The limitations of accreditation and curriculum requirements of academia in the U.S. do not foster an environment that favors programs with low levels of potential research funding, however, such opportunities exist in international degree programs.
