Option 2 (52 credit hours) is a two-year program designed for students who do not have previous educational or professional experience in historic preservation.
The first year of the program, you’ll learn fundamental knowledge and applied skills in a broad range of subjects, including architectural history, the history of the preservation movement, European and international conservation, research methods, preservation technology, documentation, preservation law and planning, and preservation economics.
In year two, you’ll engage in a preservation design studio class with a community client organization and draw upon classroom and field experiences in writing a master’s thesis or creative project. Complementary elective courses can be taken in other disciplines.
For course descriptions and complete information on program requirements, please consult the Ball State University Graduate Catalog.
