Conservation of Fine Art
The course commences with modules that provide an understanding of conservation theory and practice, the chemistry of degradation of artists materials and scientific principles involved in environmental monitoring and management. These modules build critical awareness contextual skills for conservation. The course offers 2 distinct pathways: works of art on paper and easel painting and the remainder of the programme is designed to reflect the choice of specialism.
An Honours degree, preferably in chemistry, art history, fine art or physics; science graduates must also have competence in practical art and, for arts graduates, an A-level in chemistry or equivalent will strengthen the application; English language requirements are IELTS 6.5, TOEFL (575 paper-based, 90 internet-based).
