Conservation of Objects in Museums and Archaeology BSc (Hons) Cardiff University



Course info


Course overview

BSc Conservation of Objects in Museums and Archaeology offers students interested in arts, applied science, and practical work, an opportunity to combine all of these interests within an exciting and challenging degree programme.

Conservation helps cultural and heritage objects 'tell their stories' now and into the future. We specialise in the conservation of museum objects and archaeological material, using both preventive and interventive conservation procedures.

As a conservation student you will combine theoretical knowledge with your developing practical skills, in a laboratory setting, to preserve the past. With alumni working in the sector across the globe, conservation at Cardiff has an enviable reputation for courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level and for links with the heritage sector at home and abroad.

Working in the laboratories from day one, you will have direct access to many state of the art conservation and scientific facilities. Our students become skilled in the care, repair and protection of cultural and heritage artefacts and adept at selecting the appropriate approach from the full toolkit taught to maintain our past for future generations.

Our teaching is set against the cultural context of the objects undergoing treatment. Working on these objects you will consider the needs of owners, and current and future users of objects in designing your treatments.

Career prospects

In 2015/16, 94% of the School’s graduates who were available for work reported they were in employment and/or further study within six months of graduating.

The strong vocational nature of the programme is recognised within the conservation profession and this factor provides conservation students with good job opportunities. Some conservation graduates move into research degrees, many choosing to take MSc or higher qualifications with us. Other graduates utilise their extensive transferable skills in communication, problem solving, project management, independent thinking, and scientific theory and practice to compete very successfully in a wide range of other fields.
