CHAD faculty offer a 12-credit Graduate Certificate In Historic Preservation available to both undergraduate and graduate students, and to those not currently enrolled at UD. For UD graduate students, the Certificate is available either as an option within the M.A. in Urban Affairs and Public Policy, or as an add-on for graduate students in any other department or program. Undergraduate students at UD may also obtain the Graduate Certificate simultaneously along with any undergraduate major (but must be sure to enroll only in 600-level sections rather than 400-level sections in order to have the courses count towards the Graduate Certificate). Anyone holding an undergraduate degree but not currently a full-time student at UD can enroll in the Historic Preservation Certificate Program as a part-time stand-alone graduate program.
The Graduate Certificate in Historic Preservation requires 12 credit hours.
Two 3-credit courses are required:
UAPP629 Historic Preservation Theory and Practice (3)
UAPP630 Methods in Historic Preservation (3)
The remaining 6 credits can be chosen from the following courses:
