Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Highlands College

Historic Preservation is a rapidly growing field of study. Currently there is no other Associate of Applied Science Degree in Historic Preservation Technology offered in the state or surrounding states. The Historic Preservation degree will help students to become proficient in technological skills, communication, problem solving, and informational literacy by incorporating these key areas in virtually every class. The specialty courses such as stained glass or plaster will build each of the four areas just by the nature of the course. Part-time and full-time students will gain experience related to specialty skills, which included but are not limited to masonry, stained glass and plasterwork. The classes will give students skills in these areas as well as preserve the trade for future generations. Students wishing to complete the curriculum will be required to attend both daytime and evening classes.


  • Demonstrate communication, problem solving and technical skills with individual and team learning exercises.
  • Students demonstrate the use of equipment and techniques typically used in the Historic Preservation Technician field.
  • Obtain the skills that will promote occupational growth and life-long learning.
