What: Historic Preservation Continuing Education Courses and Workshops
Want to learn the history of historic preservation and why it matters or brush up on what it takes to list a property on the National Register? Not sure if that preservation project you want to pursue will be cost effective? Then join us this fall for one or more historic preservation courses and workshops at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers University-Camden, in partnership with the New Jersey Historic Trust.
Who should participate?: Homeowners, community leaders, historic commission members, preservation activists, people in related trades and professions, public historians, students, or anyone in the region with an interest in preserving the past!
Additional info: Students may pursue a certificate in Historic Preservation, which does not require matriculation at Rutgers. Some Fall 2018 courses offer American Institute of Architects (AIA) credits, courtesy Preservation New Jersey. No previous experience in the field is necessary. Most courses take place at Rutgers University-Camden, just over the river from Philadelphia!
