Develop your expertise through our Masters in Cultural
Materials Conservation, higher degree and other programs
The Grimwade Centre delivers conservation teaching and research programs that are interdisciplinary, flexible in their delivery mode and which emphasise the philosophical, intellectual and scientific enquiries relevant to cultural materials conservation. Utilising the vast cultural collections and scientific facilities of the University, our teaching programs are practice based, ethical and informed by experts from the Grimwade Centre Commercial Services.
Specialist education is provided in various ways, including the:
- Master of Cultural Materials Conservation (by Coursework)
- Graduate Certificate in Arts (Advanced) (Principles of Cultural Materials Conservation specialisation)
- Doctor of Philosophy (Arts) (PhD)
- Master of Arts (Thesis Only)
- Master of Arts (Advanced Seminar and Shorter Thesis)
- Further information on applying for the above three degrees can be found on the Faculty of Arts Future Students Graduate Research web page
- Specialist Certificate in Cross-Cultural Conservation and Heritage (SC-CCCONS)
- Non-award courses such as the Chemistry Bridging Course tailored to students without a chemistry background.
The Specialist Certificate in Cross-Cultural Conservation and Heritage provides culturally informed advocates with an opportunity to enhance their expert knowledge. On successful completion of the Specialist Certificate, students may be eligible to progress to our other graduate degree conservation programs.
The cultural collections of the University and practice based experts from the Centre's Commercial Services provide an invaluable research and teaching resource. Linking these collections with the scientific research skill base at the University provides a unique student experience.
