This master aims to prepare applicants who intend to work in the sector of Cultural Heritage. Students will have the opportunity to develop a pragmatic and practical approach to the themes relating to cultural heritage, preservation and conservation through a series of hands-on experiences at restoration sites and laboratories combined with the direct study of artworks and practical internship sessions in enterprises and institutions.
