There is no better place to learn the processes and techniques of historic preservation than the living laboratory of Camden and nearby Philadelphia. And in fall 2016, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities, at Rutgers University-Camden, will be launching a new continuing education program in historic preservation. The program designed for those who desire to gain a deeper understanding of the vocabulary and discipline of historic preservation. Students will learn from professionals working in the field to gain a more realistic perspective on how the tangible remains of our past can be integrated within current environments.

Classes and workshops are open to anyone with an interest in preserving our built environment. These courses and workshops are part of a non-degree, non-credit program. Continuing education credits earned may be applied toward a future certificate in historic preservation (in development).
