How do we decide which buildings and environments need preserving? How do we better understand their physical fabric and the influences on their design and construction? How will they be conserved in future, and who will pay for this to happen? Study at Oxford Brookes to develop expertise in historic conservation and discover how we can preserve, learn from, and protect sites of historic importance.
You’ll examine the ideas, laws and policies that define current conservation, including how these have changed – and evolve over time. You’ll explore how built heritage can be conserved, adapted and developed in a variety of ways. And you’ll learn fundamental concepts and conservation techniques, taught by leading experts in the field.
You’ll study the history of architecture and the built environment, and progress skills in researching, analysing and recording information from historic sites.
With a broad range of guest speakers, field trips, workshops and site visits, you’ll expand your network and develop the professional skills needed to explore a variety of jobs in this sector.
