The Diploma in Heritage Resources
****** ADMISSION TO THIS PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED *****
The Diploma in Heritage Resources helps prepare students to work in the expanding heritage sector in Newfoundland & Labrador, or elsewhere.
Students who hold this diploma, along with their degree, will have the skills and knowledge to work in museums or historic sites, to participate in contracts involving heritage policy and planning and to work in the field of heritage consulting – all of which relates to the increasing regional and global importance of cultural tourism.
The diploma in Heritage Resources will also be an advantage to students wishing to study heritage or cultural resources management at the graduate level.
Who is eligible for the program?
This diploma is offered to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts or other appropriate undergraduate program, or to those who have completed a bachelor's degree already, whether from at this or another university.
Building on the student’s academic grounding in anthropology, archaeology, folklore, history, geography or other relevant disciplines, the program offers training in object documentation, identification, conservation, and display.
Required courses give students both an awareness of the broad range of heritage resources - including objects, sites, landscapes, documents - and specific skills to deal with public perceptions of objects and artifacts. The program also includes a course in tourism management.
Elective courses enable students to pursue their particular disciplinary interests. This diploma program draws on the expertise of the Archaeology Department and individual faculty members in various departments and faculties.
