Heritage Conservation is an interdisciplinary field that has practical roots in advocacy, community-based pedagogy, and sustainable planning. The School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies (SICS) has sustained a vibrant M.A. programme area in Heritage Conservation for almost thirty years. Read more about our graduates. SICS also offers an undergraduate Minor in Heritage and Conservation.

Key SICS faculty teaching in heritage and conservation subjects are Dr. Jerzy (Jurek) Elżanowski and Professor Susan Ross. They collaborate with colleagues in Architecture, Architectural History, Curatorial Studies, Engineering and History, who teach and/or do research in related subjects. Students from these other departments also participate in the graduate courses, providing a rich interdisciplinary context for learning and discussion of theory and practice. Students considering applying to study at the school are encouraged to contact professors Elżanowski and Ross to discuss their interests.
