The Art Conservation Department offers the most successful undergraduate art conservation major in the country.  More of our almuni enter conservation master’s degree programs than those from any other program. The art conservation major involves interdisciplinary study in chemistry, studio arts, anthropology, art history, and history, with a focus on preventive conservation studies. This major gives students a strong background for applying to graduate programs in art conservation, historic preservation, library and archival preservation, and museum studies. An honors degree option is available.

Working closely with an advisor, students elect courses in the departments of anthropology, art, art conservation, art history, chemistry and biochemistry, history, and others. We encourage students to double major in another discipline. During the junior or senior year, after successful completion of core courses ARTC 301 , ARTC 302 , and ARTC 185 , majors participate in at least two on or off-site internships. Also, specialized materials and techniques of art and preservation courses are required. Students in this program must earn a minimum of a C- in all required courses.
