Historic Preservation Continuing Education
There is no better place to learn the processes and techniques of historic preservation than the living laboratory of Camden and nearby Philadelphia. The Historic Preservation Continuing Education Program at Rutgers-Camden promotes the importance of historic preservation in communities by bringing together students and a wide range of active professionals in the field. The program offers courses, workshops, and the option of earning a continuing education certificate in historic preservation.
Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia
Based at MARCH, with numerous community partners, The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia is a civic project to increase understanding of one of America’s greatest cities. From abolition and the American Revolution to yellow fever and zoos (with cheesesteaks, rowhouses, and hundreds of other topics in between), the digital Encyclopedia and print volume will offer the most comprehensive, authoritative reference source ever created for the Philadelphia region.
MARCH Professional Services
MARCH Professional Services provides professional historical consulting services at a reasonable cost to non-profit and community organizations across the Greater Philadelphia area. Our trained historians and professionals in allied fields are available for research projects, educational tours and programming, exhibition design, preservation projects, digital engagement, and more.
