Recent publications coauthored by undergraduate students include:
Student blog posts can be found by browsing our “News."
We are proud of the number of art conservation students who submit senior theses each year. While rewarding, a senior thesis is not required for admission to graduate programs in art conservation. Unlike most term projects, papers, and lab reports written in undergraduate courses, a senior thesis addresses questions or issues for which no known or generally accepted answers exist.
During their junior year, students submit a proposal to the Undergraduate Research Office after meeting with their chosen first and second readers--generally faculty members from the UD art conservation department or from Winterthur. Spring semester senior year a draft is submitted to the committee who arrange an oral defense. Those who write a senior thesis graduate with a Degree with Distinction or an Honors Degree with Distinction.
