Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

Professors Coats, Hatcher-Skeers, Macko, Rankaitis
Associate Professors Koss, MacNaughton
Assistant Professor Wenzel

This major introduces students to the field of art conservation, which addresses artistic, ethical, and technical questions from an interdisciplinary perspective and combines the liberal arts and sciences to solve problems of preservation. The major also prepares 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 off-campus study programs, and build a portfolio of practical experience necessary for graduate school admission. 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.
