siteless Posted March 30, 2014 Share Posted March 30, 2014 hey everyone! I don't mean to hijack this thread, but there has been a lot of good advice here and I was hoping someone might be able to advise me. After graduating from undergrad 4 years ago, I sort of "fell" into the field of HP, and have been working in various conservation jobs since then. I'm at the point where I'd like to do some kind of further school/credentialing because I think it would help me move up career-wise- and because I really love architectural conservation and I want to learn more about it. I'm considering HP programs, and have also entertained the idea of doing an M.Arch. Going back to school sounds like it would be fun, but it would also be expensive and I'd have to quit my job and move. Also, I work with a lot of people who are in grad programs or have graduated from grad programs, and it doesn't seem to really improve employability unless you had a lot of experience already. Since I'm already working in the field, I thought it might be worthwhile to do a shorter certificate program or an online program, but those seem less "real". So do I: 1. quit my job and go to a full-time grad program, in HP or architecture, or 2. keep my job and do an online or certificate program to complement my experience with preservation history/theory/law training? Thanks! and good luck with all of your programs! ps- does anyone know anything about the NBSS preservation carpentry program? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
