Conservation Training - Certificate

The Conservation Training Certificate provides a student with a thorough knowledge of the latest artifact conservation methods and their application. Artifacts recovered from underwater sites are unstable when recovered and immediate conservation is necessary to ensure that the artifact does not deteriorate once out of the water. The certificate consists of formal courses in artifact conservation and practical application of that knowledge. Traditional approaches to artifact conservation are covered in detail as well as methods recently developed. The certificate is available to currently admitted degree seeking and non-degree seeking graduate students.
