Department of Cultural Heritage (Under Construction)

PRESERVING HUMAN PAST FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

The Department of Cultural Heritage (opening October 2022) will focus on utilizing the best practices in conservation science and methods for the protection of cultural heritage. Our graduates will 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 will address 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 will receive classroom instruction as well as hands-on training in the field and in the lab.

Classes will be taught in both Hebrew and English.
