Master of Science in Conservation, 120 hec

Would you like to study conservation, assessment and development of the material cultural heritage more in-depth? The Master’s programme in Conservation enables students to improve their ability to independently identify and address complex problems and issues within the different areas of cultural heritage conservation. The programme also prepares students for third-cycle studies in the field of conservation.

If you are specialised in built environment and conservation of built heritage, the Master’s programme offers in-depth knowledge and current tools to conduct qualified analyses. The programme addresses a wide array of questions, from preservation to contemporary use and development, in accordance with societal aims of participation and sustainable development. It enables you to strengthen your competence as a conservation officer in the field of conservation of built heritage.

If you are specialised in cultural heritage conservation, the Master’s programme provides in-depth knowledge within your field focusing on materials, decomposition processes and long-term conservation. It also enables you to strengthen and further develop your ability to critically assess relevant scientific, ethical and societal aspects in the multifaceted field of work of conservators. The programme is provided in accordance with guidelines from E.C.C.O (European Confederation of Conservators-Restorers Organisation 1994) and ENCoRE (European Network for Conservation/Restoration Education).

If you have another relevant scientific and professional background, and an interest in the material and immaterial aspects of cultural heritage, the Master’s programme enables you to deepen your knowledge in the theory and practice of cultural heritage conservation.

The programme begins with general courses that offer in-depth studies of the theoretical points of departure, historical conditions and role in society of conservation of cultural heritage, as well as assessment methods of relevance within the field. Students are then given an opportunity to design their own Master’s degree by combining different individual courses with other courses offered by the Department of Conservation. It may also be possible to  choose elective  courses provided by other departments and institutions, in Sweden and elsewhere. Courses providing in-depth and broadened knowledge within specific areas of cultural heritage conservation are offered by the Department of Conservation. The programme ends with the completion of a degree project equalling 30 or 60 higher education credits.
