The Department of Urban Cultural Management trains culture-specialists who revitalize places by utilizing the historical and cultural resources of regions.

The curriculum includes subjects that cover case studies and methods for activating local places based on an understanding of local culture and heritage management systems. Additionally, workshops addressing on-site local issues are conducted.

Old roads, streetscapes, modern architectures, and landscapes embody spaces imbued with history and culture, serving as places where the present and future generations coexist.

The Department of Urban Cultural Management seeks to unearth the value of places, teaching methods of activating spaces through festivals, tourism, and marketing, while training practical professionals who lead sustainable development in cities and regions.

Objectives of Education

We train urban and local cultural professionals capable of formulating and implementing policies and projects aimed at rehabilitating urban and local areas based on historical and cultural resources.
