PROGRAMME OF STUDY

The Programme of Study is based on 60 ECTS credits, of which 30 ECTS are compulsory and attendance is required, 6 ECTS credits are optional and attendance is required, 13 ECTS credits relate to carrying out practical studies at external institutions with photographic collections and 12 ECTS credits relate to the Final Project of the Masters course.

The compulsory training element guarantees the acquisition of the interdisciplinary skills and knowledge necessary to act responsibly in the field of photographic heritage as well as specific qualified training in relation to the cultural heritage which is the subject of this speciality.

The Masters provides a balance between knowledge of theory, the development of technical skills and the application of scientific methodology and new technologies which allow curators-restorers of photographic heritage to develop professional skills.

The ESCRBCC has an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education which allows for student mobility in both study and practical modules.
