Certificates and Minors
The Master in Preservation Studies Certificate is designed for students in the 5-year undergraduate M.Arch program and the graduate M.Arch I program who wish to gain general knowledge and ability in this specialized field of study and practice.
The School of Architecture offers a series of interdisciplinary and joint degrees with other academic units at Tulane, including programs in Urban Studies, Architecture and Business, and Architecture and Social Work.
The purpose of the minor in Architectural Studies is to encourage and give official recognition to students who study architecture beyond the introductory level but who do not wish to pursue a major or a professional degree in the field.
The Minor in Preservation Studies is offered within the Master of Preservation Studies program of the Tulane School of Architecture. Students meet a variety of experts in architectural heritage management and learn the fundamentals of historic preservation practice through four courses in historic preservation theory and practice, conservation technology, and architectural history.
Building upon Tulane University's strengths in civic engagement and service learning, the interdisciplinary social innovation and social entrepreneurship (SISE) minor will prepare students to use solutions-oriented thinking, integrate theory and practice, generate and support stimulating research across fields, and better understand and create new models of social change. This minor requires classes from the Business School and Architecture School.
