Course content

incoln's MA Conservation of Cultural Heritage enables students to gain hands-on experience while being taught by experts in the field. Students have the opportunity to develop a wide range of practical, theoretical and research skills in preparation for a career in heritage conservation.

The city of Lincoln is bursting with history and the city's rich cultural heritage makes it an ideal location in which to study conservation. Students have access to a wide variety of historic materials and can choose to focus on remedial treatment, preventive conservation, or collections management. There may also be opportunities to work with the University's commercial consultancy, Lincoln Conservation.

Students will have access to a wide variety of materials from archaeological, social history, world cultures, and decorative arts contexts. You can choose to specialise in certain modules and will learn with peers in high-specification, purpose-built laboratories in the University's Peter de Wint Building on campus.

For those already working in conservation, a blended learning option allows submission of practical projects derived from your current place of employment.
