Open House for Historic Preservation Certificate Program at NOVA’s Loudoun Campus
August 2, 2010
The community is invited to learn about the Historic Preservation Certificate Program at the Loudoun Campus of Northern Virginia Community College during an Open House on Aug. 17 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The Open House will take place in room LW-116 at NOVA’s Loudoun Campus, 1000 Harry Flood Byrd Highway in Sterling. The event is free and open to the public. Instructors will be on hand to discuss the program with potential students and light refreshments will be provided.
The Historic Preservation Program is designed to meet the needs of people who want to develop or improve research, analytical and field skills in historic preservation, archaeology and museum studies. The eight-course curriculum was developed by nationally known preservation professionals and prominent local government and community leaders, inspired by the area’s abundance of historic structures, archaeological sites and battlefields. Preservation professionals work in such positions as field archaeology assistants, site managers, museum staff, and exterior and interior renovators.
