If you are interested in a career in heritage or historic building conservation, the Conservation Studies gives you the theoretical knowledge and practical, hands-on experience you will need for a professional role in the sector.

The core of the MA in Conservation Studies covers the history and philosophy of historic environment conservation, and provides a critical understanding of contemporary issues in building conservation practice. Theoretical elements of the course are complemented by a wide choice of short ‘skills modules’, which focus on developing your knowledge of the specialist skills that are an essential part of professional practice.

This programme is also available to study at Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate level.
