Cultural Heritage and Preservation Studies (CHAPS)
The art history master of arts (M.A.) track in cultural heritage and preservation studies is a 30-credit program that combines coursework with supervised internships. Requirements include a master's thesis, examination, and 6 credits of internship/field study. A dual-degree program is offered jointly by Cultural Heritage and Preservation Studies (CHAPS) and Rutgers Law School in Newark. A four-year course of study, this program leads to the M.A. in art history with a specialty in cultural heritage preservation and to the juris doctor (M.A./J.D.). The law school will accept 9 credits from the M.A. program and CHAPS will accept 12 credits from the law school. Students are accepted independently for both graduate professional programs after separate application to each. The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) will be accepted in place of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE).
A Ph.D. track in cultural heritage and preservation studies
