What is a course in conservation? The environment requires protection and care from the damaging effects of human interference, such as global warming, deforestation, pollution and poaching. The study of conservation explores the trends and techniques involved with saving the world’s most endangered species and ecosystems. A course in this subject may include research, habitat maintenance, zoology, environmental study and natural hazards.

Communication skills are often increased and can be used in personal and private situations. The ability to analyze research and creatively solve problems are also common among these students.

The cost of taking a course in conservation is often dependent on the type of institution offering the course. Small private schools tend to be more expensive than large public schools, but researching the tuition of different schools is strongly encouraged before registering.

he fundamental role of the conservation professional is to preserve and restore, as appropriate, cultural property for present and future generations. We have a lot to learn from the experiences and events of people who have gone before us. However, we can't learn much from the past if we don't have records of it. Imagine how much history is lost to us when an ancient artifact is destroyed -- by perfectly well-meaning people who want to save it. This is an intensive, fast-paced learning experience that you will undertake in four consecutive semesters. You'll start your classes in September and spend your first three semesters, during the fall, winter and summer, at the college. Following your introduction to the field of conservation, you will gain experience in the care and handling of most common museum materials, including ceramics, glass, stone, metals, wooden objects, leather and proteinaceous materials, textiles, works of art on paper, books, archival materials, photographs and modern materials. Updated curriculum reflects best practices routed in ethical applications. Once you've learned the theory and practical skills, you'll treat museum artifacts from local, regional, and national sites. Complementary courses, workshops, assignments, and community-based projects will offer off-campus opportunities to practice conservation methods. A full-time, unpaid, curriculum-based internship in your final semester (September to December) provides an invaluable learning and work experience.... [-]
