Course content

The Master of Cultural Materials Conservation offers a professional qualification, combining both theory and practice, and emphasising the philosophical, intellectual and scientific aspects of cultural materials conservation. Students will benefit from the Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation’s strong industry links and will gain access to the University of Melbourne’s vast and varied cultural collections, including the Ian Potter Museum of Art, and the University’s library, archive and school collections. Students will also have access to industry links with leading museums, galleries, archives and libraries, across Australia and overseas, with opportunities to develop research in relation to broader issues of cultural preservation for communities and cultures within the Asian-Pacific region.

Take advantage of our unique position as a laboratory-based inter-disciplinary program and work with senior heritage professionals and conservators to preserve art and objects for future generations. You’ll get involved with Indigenous projects, including the Association of Northern Kimberley Arnhem Aboriginal Artists and the Warmun Art Centre, and global institutions, like the National Museum of the Philippines, Museums Victoria and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Victoria.
