University of Pennsylvania School of Design
Historic Preservation

The University of Pennsylvania was founded in 1740 by Benjamin Franklin to create a place that would offer practical as well as classical instruction in order to prepare students for real-world pursuits—a tradition that persists today. The Graduate Program in Historic Preservation offers the Master of Science in Historic Preservation degree, as well as dual-degrees (with other departments in the School of Design) and Certificates. The Graduate Program in Historic Preservation, with a body of approximately 70 students, is one of PennDesign’s five distinguished academic programs, which also include Architecture, City Planning, the Fine Arts, and Landscape Architecture. PennDesign has a rich tradition of intellectual leadership in redefining the field of historic preservation and a reputation for excellence in conservation, planning, interdisciplinary thinking, history and theory, and cutting-edge research and application. The successful candidate will bring leadership and presence that builds upon the Department’s long-standing reputation and be an effective advocate for the field in an increasingly open, dynamic, and international environment. The University is an equal opportunity employer. Members of minority groups, women, individuals with disabilities and veterans are encouraged to apply.
