Research and Outreach


Research in historic preservation, given its inherently interdisciplinary character, pursues a wide range of subjects and employs a wide range of methods.  A thesis is the capstone research experience for all MSHP students; however, all students complete a wide range of research projects before they begin their theses. The MSHP Newsletter provides a summary of the program's research and outreach in the community on a yearly basis. Charleston and its environs provide unmatched opportunities for archival and architectural field research as well as active engagement with community organizations and groups.

Our News and Events page is updated regularly with our faculty and students' latest projects and accomplishments.  Follow the program on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get daily updates on the preservation efforts of our program.
