The UCLA/Getty Master’s Program in the Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials is a cooperative effort between UCLA and the Getty Conservation Institute. Administered through the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, the program grants a three-year M.A. degree in Conservation. The mission of the program is to educate and train students in the highest standard of conservation practice and decision-making and to prepare them to work as professionals in the preservation of archaeological and cultural materials.
Greetings and welcome to the UCLA/Getty Interdepartmental Program (IDP) on the Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials (CAEM).
Conservation is a fascinating field. Conservators work hands-on with beautiful and unique cultural heritage objects that present interesting challenges to scientists and curators alike.
