- About Chaps
Cultural heritage and historic preservation are rapidly expanding fields, both in the United States and around the world. A recent article posted by the UK National Careers service will give you some idea of the recent expansion there—a situation that is being replicated globally.
Cultural Heritage Preservation encompasses those who conserve, interpret, study and communicate the past for future generations. Potential employers include: private and public museums; state and local historic preservation offices; historic preservation commissions; historical societies; preservation advocacy organizations; cultural resource management firms; historic sites; restoration contractors; architectural and landscape architecture firms; consultants and planning commissions; design or planning firms (national and international in focus); as well as municipal, state or federal agencies and non-governmental agencies working here and abroad.
A CHAPS MA will be a valuable complement to those seeking careers in law and public policy dealing with cultural property and heritage issues, as well as in academia. There is a growing demand across a variety of disciplines for courses addressing cultural heritage preservation issues on the graduate and undergraduate levels.
