General Description
The Heritage Management degree (B.S.H.M.) program is intended for students seeking professional careers in governmental offices of heritage, culture tourism, and planning, museums, art galleries, and other public or private agencies specializing in heritage marketing and education, building and object preservation, conservation, restoration and display.

The degree requires 120 credit hours, 69 of which consist of Heritage Management and related School of Architecture and Design requirements. Of these required courses, 31 credit hours are drawn from upper level Heritage Management courses.

Students are encouraged as well to complete related studio courses in the Multimedia and Interior Architecture programs to enhance the visual communication skills necessary for museum and gallery work. At the end of this period, students will be competent in the research, documentation, project planning, conservation, and presentation of both moveable and immovable cultural property.

They will have a thorough background in the history of material culture, an appreciation of conservation issues and theories, and the practical skills necessary for managing and protecting cultural property.
