Welcome, New Students

The Art Conservation Department offers a three-year graduate program preparing students for careers as professional conservators in museums, libraries, archives, and other cultural heritage institutions, as well as in private business. At the end of the program, students will graduate with a dual M.A. / M.S award consisting of a master of arts in Conservation of Art and Cultural Heritage and a master of science in Conservation Science and Imaging.

Accepting only 10 students a year, the competitive three-year graduate program educates and trains conservators of fine art and material cultural heritage.

Additionally, the department provides fellowships stipends of approximately $22,500 per academic year to registered students in good academic standing. Students in any one entering class receive the same level of support.
