The Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers University–Camden is launching a new continuing education program in September 2016. This new 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.

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).

All fall 2016 classes and workshops provide American Institute of Architects (AIA) continuing education credits through a partnership with Preservation New Jersey.

More information and descriptions of the 2016–2017 classes and workshops can be found at Registration for fall classes is now open.
