Graduate School of Cultural Heritage
College of Design - Graduate School of Cultural Heritage
To meet the increasing demand for expertise in the area of Cultural Heritage, the “Cultural Heritage Program” was set up in 1999 under the Graduate School of Architecture, focusing on training people in the study of historical monuments, a form of cultural assets directly related to architecture. Since its inception, the program has gradually developed to become a fully independent research institute, and the “Graduate School of Cultural Heritage” was officially established in 2002, offering M.A. Degrees.
Cultural Heritage Preservation, a new field for research, is a cross-disciplinary study combining history, art, culture, archaeology, folk culture study, ethnology, architecture, material science, Biology, chemistry, ecology, etc. hence, the research undertaken in the Graduate School will be dominantly cross-disciplinary, pooling resources from both academia and industries, local and abroad, to create a system by which students can be guided jointly and across the disciplines, in the hope of achieving greater expertise and professionalism. Thus the institute will develop a distinct identity of its own.
The curriculum planning of courses offering in the Graduate School of Cultural Heritage seeks to incorporate both the theoretical and practical aspects. Its multi-directional teaching programs maintain a perfect balance between knowledge and application, theory and practice, in-class instruction and field study, traditional techniques and scientific methods.
