MA Stained Glass Conservation and Heritage Management (2 years)

 

Description of course

'Our aim is to offer training for a variety of employment, in stained glass conservation workshops, but also in heritage management, arts administration, architectural offices, and the administration of historic buildings and museums.’

The 2-year programme includes four terms of taught courses, with two modules per term, a 16-week placement, and a 5-month dissertation. Modules are devoted to basic and advanced techniques of glass conservation. Other fields of study include the ethics and the philosophy of conservation, history of conservation, art and architectural history, archaeology, building engineering, conservation and the impact of climate change, and heritage and business administration. There is a free choice of art-historical or archaeological modules in the spring term of the second year. In each taught term a master class addressing current issues and new research is conducted by a visiting lecturer.

Placements: leading conservation studios in Britain, Europe and the United States host placements, providing valuable work experience, and networks for future careers.

Study tour: Thanks to sponsorship from Schott AG, every other year, usually in the Easter vacations, students have the chance to join a study tour to France and Germany, visiting major stained glass sites, and leading conservation practices.

The programme is taught in partnership with the Department of Archaeology. The programme may also be preparation for higher research degrees.
