MASTERS IN WORLD HERITAGE AND CULTURAL PROJECTS FOR DEVELOPMENT 2018 -19 – Call for application

UNESCO ITC-ILO is calling for applications and nominations for the MASTERS IN WORLD HERITAGE AND CULTURAL PROJECTS FOR DEVELOPMENT 2018 – 19, which will take place from 15 October 2018 to 14 October 2019.

 

The Master in World Heritage and Cultural Projects for Development aims, through a multidisciplinary approach, to impart necessary competencies and skills in management of cultural resources, design and implementation of cultural projects, and promotion of World Heritage Sites and other UNESCO designations.

 

The course combines essential knowledge of cultural economics and cultural policies with the competences needed to design projects in the cultural field. The programme explores in detail the economic, social, institutional and legal considerations that govern the diverse UNESCO Conventions (World Heritage, Intangible Heritage, Diversity of Cultural Expressions) and programs (eg: Creative Cities, Man and Biosphere, Global Geoparks, Memories of the World).

 

The Master focuses on developing economically sound projects designed around a wide spectrum of cultural activities in the fields of natural and cultural heritage, cultural and creative industries, and tourism.

 

The Programme puts significant emphasis on strategic management competencies and project management skills for the promotion of cultural resources, with a prominent attention to the cultural market analysis and set-up and management of cultural districts.

The Master duration is 1 year with only 4 months of face-to-face learning activities taking place in Turin, Italy. This makes the programme accessible and affordable for working practitioners and students coming from outside of Italy.

 

Upon completion of the programme, participants will be awarded a JOINT LEVEL specialization master’s diploma from the University of Torino and the Politecnico di Torino.

 

Who can apply?

 

Students from developing Countries who have made outstanding involvement in cultural activities.
