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, every student is awarded a Master of Arts and a Certificate of Advanced Study (MA and CAS). 

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