MA in Stained Glass Conservation & Heritage Management

July 22, 2008

York has long been the premier centre in Britain for the study of stained glass, with unmatched resources in the Minster and city churches, leading conservation studios and the History of Art department’s lively Stained Glass Research School. This innovative programme, the first of its kind in the English-speaking world, offers an integrated study of stained glass and its conservation, meeting a perceived need internationally for a qualification in this field. It is taught in partnership with the Archaeology Department. The aim is to offer training for a variety of employment, in stained glass conservation workshops, but also in heritage management, arts administration, architectural offices, engineering offices, administration of historic buildings and museums. The programme will also be a preparation for higher research degrees.
The programme is designed to appeal to a wide range of potential applicants. They will include college graduates with an undergraduate degree in related fields (e.g., glass conservation, wall-painting conservation, art history, architecture, archaeology). Applicants without a college degree, but with exceptional experience or demonstrable skills may also be admitted, subject to an entrance test. All candidates should have some previous experience in glass conservation; preliminary placements can be arranged and some funding will be available for this from ICON, the national confederation of conservators in Britain.
