Fulbright Foundation Scholarship
The MA in Heritage Management is honoured to work with the Fulbright Foundation on a new scholarship - covering living expenses - that is announced for the academic year 2013-14.
Climate change and the monuments
Climate change is a great environmental issue faced by humanity today. Its consequences have not fully been mapped despite the fact that thousands of awareness raising events have been organized and academic research has been conducted.
Dr. Kalliopi Fouseki (Science Museum) and Dr. Georgios Alexopoulos (IPUP)
Although the broadening of the audience in museums has been tackled by the field of museology since the 1950s, the need to engage people from a broader sociological spectrum has today emerged as a mandatory requirement.
The MA in Heritage Management is an intensive three semester (one and a half academic year) postgraduate programme which uniquely combines the worlds of archaeology and business and is taught in Athens at Eleusina, an area of world-class archaeological significance. It focuses on teaching the skills required for the management of heritage sites across the world and how to effectively work with archaeologists, architects, conservators, marketing and education specialists while fundraising and supervising specific projects.
“The MSc in Heritage Management based in Greece is a very worthwhile enterprise. The skills you gain from the programme are much in demand. Such training forms a significant step forward.”
Professor Lord Colin Renfrew, Honorary Professor of University of Kent.
“Our MA in Heritage Management provides professionals with the unique opportunity to fine tune their skills and knowledge so that they are able to manage archaeological sites anywhere in the world, thusmaking local heritage relevant to a global audience.”
Professor Gregory P Prastacos, Dean, Howe School of Technology Management, Stevens Institute of Technology
