The certificate program requires 18 credits and an internship to complete. Four courses comprise a required core to the program; one course must be taken in a chosen track. One additional elective course may or may not be in the chosen track, but it must be listed among the courses approved by the Advisory Committee. The course, "Introduction to Historic Preservation", is offered every spring semester, and should be taken at the earliest opportunity. The internship represents either a paid co-op with a firm or organization that engages in historic preservation work, or a volunteer effort with a non-profit preservation-oriented organization that amounts to 90 hours of service. Qualified students may substitute professional service for the internship. Students may transfer up to nine credit hours from other universities; each student's advisor will make determinations regarding transfer credits adn substitutions.
