The Graduate Program in Historic Preservation offers a 54 credit M.S. in Historic Preservation and is a joint degree program between the College of Charleston and Clemson University. Courses are offered at the studios and laboratories located at 292 Meeting Street near the College of Charleston’s campus. The program is structured sequentially beginning with an initial core semester devoted to the analysis and documentation of historic sites, followed by a more advanced studio-focused semester organized around the development of a preservation project. After a summer internship, the second year is organized around laboratory and studio classes. A thesis is required.
The organizational structure of the degree program and the curriculum have been developed with the guidance of numerous professional organizations as well as the regional professional community in preservation and design.
