About this course

This three-year master of arts program prepares students for careers as professional conservators to care for works of artistic, historical, or cultural significance, from famous paintings to family heirlooms. The instructional program, which includes a 12-month internship at a museum or other institution, provides students with a broad background in conservation to help ensure continued professional growth throughout their careers. In their second year, students select objects, paintings, or paper conservation as a specialty. They may choose to focus on a subspecialty, such as ethnographic or archaeological objects, photographs, or books. A certificate of advanced study in art conservation is awarded with the M.A. degree.
