Thread: Career paths in adaptive reuse?

    Career paths in adaptive reuse?

    The job postings that I have seen require degrees or knowledge in Historic Preservation. There are basic architecture courses that you could take, your "foundation" if you will.

    North Carolina has very very low unemployment, so your chances would be better. Good Luck!

    (I have a degree in Architecture and Masters in City and Regional Planning, and am on a historic preservation commission and am also staff to a historic preservation commission.)

    Career paths in Adaptive Reuse?

    I would say that a degree in Architecture would create more career possibilities down the road. Research archtitecture programs that offer certificate programs along with their traditional MArch degrees. I attend the University of Washington, and I know that a certificate in Preservation and a certificate in Urban Design are both options that students can choose from to specialize in one area.

    Good Luck!
