SBM 150 Introduction to Historic Preservation - 3 credit hours (Pending ICCB Approval)
This course is the first course to be developed for what will eventually be a complete certificate program for Historic Preservation at Spoon River College. The course is under the auspices of the Small Business Management program, and will provide foundations in the historic preservation movement in America, with an overview of basic and American architectural styles. While the course is designed for students majoring in small business management, entrepreneurship, community and/or economic development, its appeal and benefits will likely reach beyond those sectors.

“This course offers an introduction into an area that has linkages into construction and related job options,” said Jim Genandt, Dean of Career and Technical Education at Spoon River College. “In addition, the course could well have a positive influence on enrollment into art, electronic design, and other small business management courses/programs.”

Among the learning goals for this course are identifying standard architectural styles and defining architectural terms, understanding the connection of historical preservation to community and economic development, and communicating the importance of historic preservation at the local level to the general public and governmental agencies.

“We believe there is a strong need for such a program in this area and that it will become a popular one,” Genandt said, adding that the course would consist of lectures and discussions, along with special projects, guest speakers and field trips.​​
