The Georgia State University Master of Heritage Preservation Program offers compelling opportunities to pursue careers relating to the preservation, restoration, and interpretation of the physical past.
The MHP Program, based in Georgia State University's History Department, produces graduates with a solid grounding in urban and architectural history as well as the research and writing skills essential to any career in public history and historic preservation.
Students of the program benefit from the location of Georgia State University in the heart of Atlanta, the capital of Georgia and a regional center. Faculty members are current leaders in historic preservation at the local and state level, bringing valuable experience to the classroom. Students gain internship experience and often find full-time jobs after graduation in a variety of local, state, and national agencies and organizations, as well as in the private sector. Through cross registration, students in the MHP Program have access to the courses and resources of the Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, and the Atlanta University Center.
The Georgia State University program attracts students from age 21 to 60, all with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests, creating an eclectic and energetic academic setting. Our students use their heritage preservation education to teach, advocate, restore, interpret, and plan for the preservation of historic resources.
