Pathway to the University of Mary Washington’s Historic Preservation Degree

NOVA is pleased to announce a special degree pathway created in collaboration with the Department of Historic Preservation at Mary Washington University (MWU), in Fredericksburg, VA.

Students who wish to continue their studies at Mary Washington will graduate from NOVA by completing the Liberal Arts Associate of Arts degree and our certificate in Public History and Historic Preservation.

Students can then transfer into the historic preservation degree program at Mary Washington with junior-level standing, credit for HISP 100, a required course at MWU equivalent to our HIS 181, credit for HISP 105, another required course at MWU equivalent to our HIS 180, and 6 credits of major HISP electives (for our HIS 183 and 187).  That makes a total of 12 of the 36 required credits for the historic preservation Bachelor of Arts degree at Mary Washington.
