BA in Conservation

Conservation means understanding and preserving. Learn how art and cultural assets can be preserved in the Bachelor’s program: from paintings and sculptures to graphics, video art and buildings, from archaeological and scientific objects to textiles.

MA in Conservation

Taking responsibility for restoration projects yourself – that’s where the Master’s program in Conservation-Restoration will take you. You will have plenty of time for practical work in our specialized atelier.
