Study Projects

Study projects enable students to apply the skills and knowledge they have acquired in the classroom within the context of heritage and cultural management, preparing them for professional work in the field. Students will learn how to assess heritage sites and work with a wide range of stakeholders, as well as how to identify threats and opportunities, formulate strategic plans and develop, through individual and teamwork, viable models for the protection and promotion of heritage sites. Students will gain skills in scientific research, critical analysis, communication, problem solving, concept development and project management. Study projects offer opportunities to participate in excursions and site visits, allowing students to connect theory, experiential learning and professional practice.
