The Department of Environment in collaboration with the Department of Archives, Libraries & Museology of the Ionian University, founded and operate since 2020-21 a Postgraduate Programme (MSc) entitled "Preservation & Management of Cultural Heritage" in accordance with the provisions of Law 4485/2017.
This taught postgraduate programme examines the current problems of protecting, preserving and highlighting cultural heritage objects (works of art & antiquities) in the current framework of strong economic and social changes, and worsening environmental conditions. Within this framework, preservation of cultural heritage is vulnerable and poses many challenges. The fast changing, and often unpredictable factors that challenge the preservation of cultural heritage act on a wide range of heritage venues, including archaeological excavations, private and public museums, galleries, churches, historical cemeteries et al.
The MSc is addressed to all professionals working in the field of cultural heritage preservation, including conservators, historians, archaeologists, museologists, educators, librarians and cultural heritage management specialists who wish to expand their knowledge background and focus on the management of cultural heritage within a fast changing, challenging environment.
