Conservation Science Tutorials

With the support of the Getty Foundation, FAIC created a series of self-paced modules that review key science principles in conservation. The modules are designed to:

  • help mid-career conservators refresh their knowledge;
  • prepare participants for workshops on specific topics; and
  • assist students about to enter a graduate conservation program.
Please note that the tutorials are now accessible on FAIC's Conservation OnLine (CoOL) website.  The links below will take you to appropriate launch pages on CoOL.  You can also navigate to the tutorial index page on the CoOL website for all the tutorials if you prefer.

Special thanks to members of the Association of North American Graduate Programs in Conservation (ANAGPIC) and the AIC Board of Directors for reviewing these materials.

This project was conceived at a Directors Retreat organized by the Getty Conservation Institute and was developed with grant funding from the Getty Foundation
