NJ Historical Commission Conference: New Jersey and the Great War

wwi

2017 is the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War I. New Jersey’s contribution to the war effort was both large and multi-faceted. New Jersey factories sent supplies to the allies before and after April 6, 1917; Camp Dix and other training facilities prepared troops for service overseas; thousands embarked for Europe from Hoboken; and over 140,000 state residents ultimately served in the conflict. Many of the changes brought by the Great War, whether economic, social, technological, military, or artistic, continue to affect the Garden State to the present day. The New Jersey Historical Commission’s 2017 annual conference will consider the many impacts of this vast international conflict on the state.

Certificate Program in Historic Preservation at Rutgers Camden

 hist pres continuing ed 

There's 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 University-Camden was launched in 2016 and is now offering a Certificate in Historic Preservation.

Designed for those who desire to gain a deeper understanding of the vocabulary and discipline of historic preservation, students will learn from professionals working in the field to gain a more realistic perspective on how the tangible remains of our past can be integrated within current environments.

The certificate program is not a degree program, but it can be used to supplement a student's work in an allied field, such as history or architecture. Participation in the certificate program does not require matriculation at Rutgers. Students may begin course work at any time and take classes in any sequence. Students can complete the program at their own pace, but must fulfill all of the requirements.
