The Pacific Northwest Preservation Field School curriculum is designed to attract participants from all walks of life from those with no experience in preservation but who possess a love for heritage and a desire to learn, to practicing cultural resource professionals, and undergraduate and graduate students. The University of Oregon's Historic Preservation Program developed this Field School to provide participants with the opportunity to experience preservation firsthand.
The field school is intended for anyone interested in working in a hands-on environment and getting experience working with preservation craftspeople in the spectacular Pacific Northwest. The typical class varies in age, skill, background, and interest, but the common thread is always enjoyable learning. Incoming graduate students in the Historic Preservation MS Program are required to enroll for at least one session as part of their graduation requirements. Many participants have used the field school to launch into historic preservation, and many graduates of the University of Oregon's program got their start at the Pacific Northwest Field School.
