Tulane University (New Orleans, LA) Master of Preservation Studies (MPS)

Another amazing city for studying Preservation, New Orleans! This program caught my attention because when I looked at the class layout, they had 4 options for streams (focus subjects) that you could chose from ( preservation planning, technology, methodology, and architectural history). Any program that allows me to focus on being in the lab and getting a degree, is a program that I will think about applying to!

So some facts about the program

  • 2 year program with your focus subject determining the basic outline of classes
  • Internship, heritage studies, national and international study travel that allows first hand experience in the field
  • The ability to focus on the area of study that you are passionate about ( subject streams)

How to apply

  • Deadline is around Jan. 15 (for the Fall 2014 start)
  • Things required:

 1. Portfolio (optional for MPS)

2. Statement of Interest

3. Official Transcripts

4. Letters of Recommendation (3)

5. Resumé

6. Application Form

7. Application Fee ($25, non-returnable)

8. GRE scores sent to the School of Architecture

      • Great! There has been some turnover amongst the professors since I graduated 2 years ago, but John Stubbs is a brilliant preservationist with an unbelievable track record. Plus, you get to study in one of the greatest preservation laboratories in the U.S. in NOLA
