Program Description

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Please note that applications are due by 10 pm on March 1!


Students enroll in the following two courses:

HPCP 290: UK Historic Preservation and Community Planning - 3 credits
ARTH 290: Architecture and Urbanism in Great Britain - 3 credits


HPCP will focus on heritage sites and their management in the United Kingdom. World Heritage Sites, English Heritage Sites and National Trust Sites from London to Edinburgh will be part of the tour. Castles, cathedrals, industrial and maritime heritage, Victorian back-to-backs and the UK involvement in the international slave trade will be studied.

ARTH 290 will offer students a comprehensive survey of architectural and urban design on the richly diverse island of Great Britain, from prehistoric hill forts to ancient Roman baths, from medieval fortress towns to Renaissance garden squares, from Victorian crystal palaces to utopian modernist New Towns. Our study of design will be rooted in political and social history.
