Art Conservation

This major introduces students to the field of art conservation, which addresses the artistic, ethical, and technical questions pertaining to the field of art conservation from an interdisciplinary perspective and combines the liberal arts and sciences to solve problems of preservation. The major is structured to prepare students for rigorous graduate programs in art conservation. A variety of science, art history, art, and other courses prepare students to engage in internships at the Williamson Gallery, enroll in conservation courses in Study Abroad and Global Education programs, and to build a portfolio and gain the practical experience necessary for graduate school admission and employment. The major introduces students to careers in art conservation, which can encompass three roles—conservator, researcher, and manager. These roles correspond to application, science, and policy areas of study in the conservation of architecture, archaeology, archives, and art.
