Conservation and Stewardship Graduate Certificate

The Conservation and Stewardship Graduate Certificate promotes and produces knowledge and techniques in the restoration and regeneration of a wide array of cultural artifacts. Broadly based in the arts and the sciences, the Certificate in Conservation and Stewardship focuses on collaborative research and coursework – in particular on the relationships between the design disciplines and their effect on both built and natural environments. Owing to the growing global concern for sustainable and regenerative responses to designed and natural environments, this concentration explores the processes and systems that affect both local and global responses to contemporary issues of public policy. The Certificate in Conservation and Stewardship has three goals: to expand local knowledge through topical research, to document the physical environment and the human effect on these environments, and to disseminate that documented knowledge to educate future practitioners and scholars, and the public at-large.

The Certificate in Conservation and Stewardship offers opportunities for topical study such as, but not limited to:

  • Sustainable Urban and Rural Landscapes TVA and Public Policy
  • Cultural Resource Conservation and Development Architectural Preservation
  • Potential Resources:
  • Governor’s Chair for Energy + Urbanism UTK Smart Communities Initiative
