Conservation - Restoration
Since 2006/07 NOVA is offering a Bachelor degree in Conservation-Restoration, two Master degrees, in “Conservation and Restoration” and in “Conservation Sciences”, as well as a PhD in Conservation and Restoration, following the new guidelines for the three study cycles within academic higher education.
The Bachelor degree curriculum provides a solid humanistic and scientific culture, where in the first year mathematics, physics, geology, chemistry and art history are lectured. In the second year, the training in conservation starts with the fundamental courses in "Preventive Conservation" and "Polymers and Conservation". Finally in the third year the students acquire scientific and technical skills to carry out a diagnosis concerning the conservation state of cultural objects: paintings, metals, stone, textiles, paper and other graphic documents, glass and ceramics. "Cultural Heritage Management" and "Cultural Heritage Law" are also courses run in the third year.
The underlying principle of the 1st cycle program in Conservation and Restoration is to make use of the sciences for the formation of a coherent and interdisciplinary profile that will allow the future professionals to effectively use scientific skills and competences for a better conservation and access to our Cultural Heritage.
