Academic Programs

NCPE has reviewed historic preservation education programs throughout the United States, according to our membership standards. The programs, linked to below, all comply with these standards.

The information in these charts includes: institution (a link to the program’s website), city and state, contact information, areas of emphasis, degree awarded, and class size.

The charts on these pages are dynamically searchable, making it simple to narrow a search to (for example) all programs within a particular state, or emphasizing a particular area of interest within the field of historic preservation.  More specific directions for searching the tables can be found above the charts themselves.
