UB Architecture School offers 2 new programs in historic preservation

The University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning is offering two new programs in historic preservation that begin in the fall.

A master’s of science degree in architecture will combine the study of historic preservation and urban design, and requires the completion of a project that focuses on an actual building or site in the Buffalo Niagara region.

An 18-credit advanced certificate program is geared toward architects, planners, historians, lawyers, journalists and other professionals who believe historic preservation can advance their careers.

“We thought there was an unmet need in the region – an underserved market of people who genuinely want to get a firmer base in historic preservation,” said Robert G. Shibley, dean of architecture and planning.
