Current graduate researchers
Subjects in the Master of Cultural Materials Conservation (by coursework and minor thesis) are taught in intensive two-week blocks. For most subjects this means that contact hours are 9 am – 5 pm each Monday, Tuesday and Thursday over a two week period.
Treatment based subjects (CUMC40005 and CUMC90005) are offered over a longer period to allow for students to complete hands-on treatments during the contact and non-contact periods. The treatment labs will also be available (9:30 am to 4:00 pm) for student access on Wednesdays and Fridays of the teaching period and all days during the assessment period. Due to EHS requirements students are required to pre-book lab time with the subject co-ordinator.
The 2013 dates for each subject are listed on the 2013 Conservation subjects web page.
Please Note: these dates are face-to-face delivery dates only – non-contact preparatory tasks and pre-reading periods commence two weeks prior to start of delivery, and three or four-week post-teaching assessment periods are scheduled during which time staff are available via email, and via appointment for discussion. Course material and web links to topics of interest and relevance will be posted to the online LMS (Learning Management System) during these periods, so you are urged to log on to your subject LMS sites regularly.
The following subjects are exceptions to the two-week teaching period:
- CUMC40005 Conservation Assessment and Treatment 1 is delivered over 3 weeks with supervised contact hours on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
- CUMC90005 Conservation Assessment and Treatment 2 – this is a 25 point subject, hence delivery is over a 4 week period; with supervised contact hours on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
- CUMC90007 Minor Thesis is as a year-long subject, that must be taken over two consecutive semesters. Fortnightly meetings are scheduled with your supervisor throughout each semester.
- CUMC90006 Conservation Internship is a three-week placement, which is normally taken in a full-time block; depending on host availability alternative (part-time) arrangements may be possible.
