History and Historic Preservation Dual-M.A. Program

The History and Historic Preservation Master of Arts (HiHP) dual-degree program is jointly run by the Department of History and the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. HiHP students graduate with both a Master of Arts in History and a Master of Historic Preservation (MHP) degree.

HiHP Program Overview

The HiHP program allows students to complete both degrees in as little as seven semesters.  Each program encourages students to take electives in complementary fields. The dual degree permits students to capitalize on these electives by using the elective credits in each degree to meet the requirements of the other degree. Upon completion of the program, students will possess a diverse resume with experience in both the historic preservation and history professional communities.

The HiHP program requires sixty (60) credit hours of study, with a minimum of twenty-four (27) hours in the Department of History and thirty-three (33) in the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. There is no non-thesis option for the degree.
