All applicants who reach the final stages of evaluation will be invited for a virtual interview. At that time, they will present a studio portfolio of both two- and three-dimensional objects that demonstrate their art and crafts skills and their conservation experiences (see Portfolio Requirements List below). During the interview, applicants will also be given two questions; they are to choose one to answer in 30 minutes. The questions are designed to get a sense of the applicants' thoughts on overview/debatable issues in the world of conservation, art, artifacts, museums, libraries, etc. such as "what do you consider the pros and cons of visible conservation treatments—treating works in front of the public?"
All applicants invited for interviews will take in advance an online essay examination that connects the fundamentals of general and organic chemistry to the structure, deterioration, preservation, and analysis of cultural heritage.
Only those students who receive a formal letter of invitation from the Director of the Art Conservation Program to attend interviews will be required to present portfolios of conservation and studio work at the interview. Instructions for submission of the portfolios will be included.
The conservation portfolio will be used by the Admissions Committee to evaluate the applicant's level of preparation for conservation work. At the interview the applicant will give a 20-minute PowerPoint or Prezi presentation of their conservation work.
For the Conservation Portfolio, please submit three reports in PDF format that will help demonstrate the depth and/or breadth of your experience and your professionalism. For each file sent there is a size limit of 150GB. There is not a specified page limit and images can be included, however longer reports may not be able to receive in-depth review.
The studio portfolio will be used by the Admissions Committee to judge the craftsmanship, artistic sensitivity, and manual dexterity of invited applicants. For the Art Conservation Studio Art Portfolio, please submit:
