Photographic Preservation and Collections Management
The Photographic Preservation and Collections Management (PPCM) program is a comprehensive combination of practical and classroom experience that offers access to the museum's unparalleled photographic collections, the world's largest library of photographica, and an internationally recognized faculty and staff. The two-year master's degree jointly offered by the University of Rochester and the George Eastman Museum teaches the care, preservation, and interpretation of photographs within a broader humanities context. The Eastman Museum also offers an intensive, eight-month certificate program for professionals, students, and independent scholars.
The L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation
The L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation offers a one-year certificate course and a two-year master's program in partnership with the University of Rochester. Established at the George Eastman Museum in 1996, the Selznick School was the first full-fledged program established in the United States for archival training, museum studies, and curatorship in film and media. Students of the Selznick School learn the arts and sciences of film and media preservation at the museum and at its digital laboratory, where archival film is transferred into new access formats for viewing and research.
