Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program Listings

This minor prepares students for entry into a program in art conservation/restoration and/or museum studies at the Master’s level.  Students learn about the historical and material properties of artworks and/or monuments in order to enter into a field that (through additional graduate study) prepares them for many careers in arts institutions that relate to the authentication, transport, restoration, conservation and display of artworks and artifacts.  The curriculum is focused on interdisciplinary preparedness and exposure to areas of study required for entrance into most conservation programs.


One of:


A. Art and Art History (12 credits)

B. Chemistry (16 credits)


Students are strongly encouraged to undertake an internship in the major of relevance to conservation/restoration, either for credit or on a volunteer basis.
