Applying for the Art Conservation Major

Students apply to the undergraduate program in art conservation through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. You do not need to submit a portfolio to apply for this program. Application decisions are made by the Admissions Office.​

An undergraduate degree in art conservation prepares students for graduate-level study in conservation, historic preservation, museum studies, or library science. Our students often double-major or minor in related disciplines such as chemistry, material culture, anthropology, art history, and history. Double-majors and minors can easily be added later in consultation with an advisor, not at the time of admission.

*Note for Transferring Students: The Department cannot guarantee that you will graduate in less than two years when transferring from another institution or from another major within the University of Delaware. Most transfer students spend a minimum of 2, often 3 years earning a bachelor’s degree in art conservation—even with transfer credits approved from a previous institution. Internal UD transfers can make a change of major via UDSIS.​
