|Work in the heritage sector involves many different and specialized practices. These include the work undertaken at archives, at a huge range of museums, interpretive centres, historic places and heritage landscapes, and as part of some types of scientific and cultural activity. These many differences reflect the vitality and range of the contemporary heritage field.
The University Certificate in Heritage Resources Management (HRM) is a comprehensive program of study that is designed for people who want a broad perspective on Heritage Resources Management, who wish to pursue careers or other involvement with heritage resources practice, or who are working or volunteering in the field and who wish to improve their skills in heritage practice.
There is a required practicum component in this program. Before students are admitted to the program, they must demonstrate that they can make adequate arrangements for the completion of the required practicum. For more information about the practicum and this program, phone 780.675.6955 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The HRM program is offered by Athabasca University's Centre for Integrated Studies. Some courses in the HRM program are available now, while others are in development and will be available for students at different times over the next two years. Students can enrol in the program now and begin taking courses with the knowledge that the whole program will be in place by late 2009. All courses are offered in distance format with tutor support.
