Department of Cultural Heritage


The Department of Cultural Heritage (opening October 2022) focuses on utilizing the best practices in conservation science and methods for the protection of cultural heritage. Our graduates play a vital role in protecting and preserving the art, objects and historic sites that tell the story of our lives, history, and society. This is the only department of its kind in Israel.

The Department addresses challenges such as climate change and development pressures, protection of cultural heritage on land and underwater, recording methods, the future of museums and novel ways of interacting with local and global policy makers and shareholders. Students receive classroom instruction as well as hands-on training in the field and in the lab.

Classes are taught in both Hebrew and English.
