The Diploma in Heritage Resources is offered to students enrolled in the BA or other appropriate Bachelor's program and to students who have completed a Bachelor's degree at this or another university. 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.
