Queen's University in Kingston offers the only Canadian Master's degree program in art conservation -- a Master of Art Conservation.
Combining theory and practice, advanced programs aim to educate and train conservators and conservation scientists to a professional level. Students must specialize in conservation of paintings, artifacts, or paper objects. Graduates from the Queen’s program are employed worldwide in conservation laboratories and research facilities in art galleries, museums, libraries, archives, and independent conservation studios.
This three-year Ontario College Advanced Diploma program provides students with a sound background in museum work and the technical areas common to all museums including collections management, exhibit preparation, conservation, educational programming and museum management.
The program has three components: academic studies, workshops and field placement.
