Class of 2014 internship and thesis presentations

The quarter ends next week and that means our 3rd year students are back to give their final presentations before graduation.  Today they’ll be presenting on the work they did during their 3rd year internships as well as on their MA thesis projects (listed below).  Afterwards, it’s time to celebrate their graduation!  We’re very proud of the class of 2014 and wish them the best as they start their careers as conservators!
