    Historic Preservation vs. MUP

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if any planners out there hold master's in historic preservation and know what sorts of opportunities are out there for MHP graduates. I'm still torn between going the MHP route (I majored in history and love architecture) and the MUP route (more practical/lucrative[?]). Any advice would be much appreciated!

    There are programs which allow you to obtain a dual degree. I spoke to someone from U Penn who earned it and she said that it is no different than getting one degree. You just make sure a lot of your classes overlap.

    Thanks for the info! I think that may be the path i'm going to take...does anyone here currently work for a historic commission or do other preservation work?

    Search through the threads in the Career Development and Advice forum - there are a few folks on here with MHP degrees and/or working in various areas related to historic preservation.
    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"
