Certificate in Historic Preservation

Program Overview

The Certificate in Historic Preservation was approved by the College of Architecture Executive Committee in November 1995 for the purpose of providing students in any graduate degree program at Texas A&M University the opportunity to develop a body of knowledge in historic preservation to support their individual career goals.
