Historic preservation classes begin at Rutgers University-Camden this Spring

Continuing education program at Rutgers University- Camden offers new Historic Preservation classes in February

CAMDEN, NJ – The Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers University–Camden’s new continuing education program begins its spring semester in February. This program is a non-degree, non-credit program that is open to anyone interested in historic preservation: members of historic preservation commissions, town planners, historic site administrators and volunteers, owners of old or historic buildings, town planners, architects, engineers, attorneys, students, and anyone else with an interest in preserving our built environment. Offerings include full-scale courses as well as one-day and half-day workshops.

There is no better place to learn the processes and techniques of historic preservation than the living laboratory of Camden and nearby Philadelphia. The Historic Preservation Continuing Education Program at Rutgers–Camden is designed for those who desire to gain a deeper understanding of the vocabulary and discipline of historic preservation. It provides fundamentals of contemporary historic preservation practice as well as opportunities for in-depth studies. 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.

Any student or community member may register for any course or workshop. Classes are taught on a pass/fail basis. Continuing education credits earned may be applied toward a future certificate in historic preservation (in development). American Institute of Architects (AIA) credits are available for some classes; American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) credits are pending.

This spring offerings include a class in American architectural history, a workshop on cemetery preservation, and a workshop on the relationship of zoning and planning to historic preservation for historic commission members and others. More information and descriptions of classes and workshops can be found at Registration for spring classes is now open.

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers–Camden aims to tap the region’s rich intellectual and cultural resources to forge new strategies for understanding and communicating the nature of the places where we live and their inheritance. MARCH offers on-site teaching and training opportunities to prepare and encourage the next generation of scholars, cultural administrators, archivists, and teachers to enter public humanities work and develops projects and services to prepare a range of constituents, from high school and university teachers to life-long learners, to take better advantage of existing cultural resources. Through demonstration projects and cooperation with regional organizations and humanities professionals, MARCH seeks to be a catalyst for change and to improve the quality of life in the Mid-Atlantic region.
