Overview

Relationship Between the Master's and Doctorate Programs

The Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials (CAEM) M.A. degree program from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), is a practice- focused degree, rich in scientific content, scholarly approach and research methodology. Students apply directly to the CAEM M.A. Degree Program.  The practice-focused CAEM M.A. Program should not be confused with the research-focused Conservation of Material Culture (CMC) M.S./Ph.D. Program should not be confused with the practice-focused also offered by the Conservation IDP that trains professional conservators.

The CAEM M.A. degree however, requires an additional 32 units of conservation laboratory courses, a short practice application-oriented or research-based M.A. paper and an eleventh month internship (most commonly in a conservation department of a museum) enabling students to develop integrative and intense practice experiences and informed treatment skills, preparing them for professional conservation careers.
