Art Conservation Curriculum

To earn a bachelor’s degree students must complete 124 credits and meet specific requirements as outlined in the University of Delaware undergraduate catalog. The following plan is only one example; each student will determine their course work in consultation with a department advisor. The average number of credits per semester ranges from 14-17. Winter and summer sessions can help lighten regular semester course work. Remember to check graduate school requirements to be sure you are fulfilling both graduation and graduate entrance requirements. We encourage students to major or minor in related fields such as chemistry, art history, anthropology, a language, art, material culture studies (minor only) etc. A double major within the College of Arts and Science requires 124 credits total (not 154).
