There is no better place to learn the processes and techniques of historic preservation than the living laboratory of Camden and nearby Philadelphia.
The newly launched Historic Preservation Continuing Education Program at Rutgers-Camden, sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities, is designed for those who desire to gain a deeper understanding of the vocabulary and discipline of historic preservation. Students will learn from professionals working in the field to gain a more realistic perspective on how the tangible remains of our past can be integrated within current environments.
Open to anyone with an interest in preserving our built environment, these courses and workshops are part of a non-degree, non-credit program. Continuing education credits may be applied toward a future certificate in historic preservation (in development). Fall 2016 classes offer AIA continuing education credits through a partnership with Preservation New Jersey.

Gigantino (plus a tour of the Ford Mansion), keynote address by Pulitzer Prize-winning and New York Times-bestselling author Dan Fagin, and an array of informative panel discussions throughout the day.
