How do we make history matter to our communities? How do we preserve a living legacy for future generations? How do we work with contemporary communities to help them tell their stories and make meaningful decisions about the future of their towns and cities?

UNCG’s Interior Architecture Department offers a unique graduate curriculum in Historic Preservation. Students can earn a Master of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture while completing a set of classroom-based and hands-on experiences in the historic preservation specialization or they can complete a Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Historic Preservation.


The Graduate Program in Museum Studies has moved to the History Department. To learn more about the program, please visit the History Department's website.

Through cross-disciplinary collaborative work, students explore the intersections of history and design in ways that prepare them for the larger world of work in preservation and museums.
