Student Profile(s)

Catinca Manaila

“I chose this program, because it offers a contemporary and multidisciplinary perspective on cultural heritage. Our professors facilitated real-world learning by taking us outside of the classroom as much as possible – from field trips and city visits to exhibitions and museums – so we could learn from working professionals and leading scholars on-site. This has aided me to think outside the box from my previous experiences. I will draw upon these lessons throughout my career, which hopefully will be in the conservation of built heritage.”
