What is it about? The Minor in Conservation provides the background and foundational understanding of the dynamic field of conservation, with emphasis on both the tangible and intangible aspects of heritage. Minor in Conservation students are exposed to the history and theory of the field, as well as some of the key technical skills required. Each course involves a mix of in-class lectures and discussions, as well as a few field studies to real-life conservation projects, allowing students to more effectively learn and understand the field.

Whether you are studying Business, Geography, History, Journalism or Social Sciences (amongst others) there is value in having a foundational understanding of the field of conservation; particularly as the field is gaining momentum both locally and in the region.
