Your love of history is a good foundation for a career in
preservation. In high school, take as many history classes as
possible. Start with U.S. history, but also consider the history of
art and architecture. Business classes such as marketing and
finance will prove helpful when raising funding for a new project
or finishing one within a set budget. As a historic
preservationist, you will be expected to write proposals to
nominate a potential site, research a specific architectural style,
or work as a liaison between federal and local agencies. Begin your
training with classes that will strengthen your writing and
speaking skills such as speech and English.
