M.S. HP Theses

A thesis is a requirement for graduation in the Historic Preservation Program. It is original and independent work, designed to showcase a capacity to research, analyze, and present material on a topic relevant to the discipline.

Theses produced in recent years by graduates of the Historic Preservation Program are listed below. Theses produced prior to 2012 include the title and abstract for each thesis; these titles are housed in Special Collections, Avery Library, and may be requested through Avery Library. Theses produced since 2012 are available digitally through Columbia University Academic Commons, the University’s digital research repository. Graduating students have the option of deferring the publication of their thesis on Academic Commons for up to two years and therefore not all theses from the past two years may be available.

Alumni who are interested in posting their thesis to the online repository, Academic Commons, should submit a completed Author Rights Agreement form, and a digital version of their thesis following the Digital Thesis Guidelines to the Historic Preservation Office at hp@arch.columbia.edu.
