Graduate School of Cultural Heritage

Educational objectives

In order to systematically identify the value of cultural heritage and continuously preserve and utilize it, the Department of Heritage Conservation and Restoration aims to cultivate competitive experts in the area of cultural heritage repair and restoration through an unparalleled education system of cultural heritage repair, preservation, and restoration techniques, and providing in-depth education in each area together with convergence programs on measures to prevent the damage and loss of cultural property, traditional materials, and other related subjects. Through this, professionals with practical skills in preservation, repair, and restoration of cultural assets, essential for the succession and development of national culture, are produced every year. Moreover, practical education programs linked to different majors have been strengthened to respond to the rapidly changing international environment, contributing to the preservation of cultural property.

Educational content

The Department of Heritage Conservation and Restoration offers a two-track system of 1) research-oriented and yet practical research courses, and 2) practical courses with a focus on training of field-level practical skills. This enables students to choose what they learn and enhances the selective specialty of the degree courses. Specifically, the research track fosters an R&D-orientation through in-depth research by majors of architecture, landscaping, or urban engineering, and those majors related to preservation and restoration. The practical track provides retraining of hands-on personnel involved in various works in the field concerning cultural property, and develop students into specialists with both theory and practical skills for adaptation to the field. Also available is a “specialized research track” where students working towards a degree can personally participate in academic studies or specialized training as researchers or hands-on practitioners through an education-practical work linkage system with domestic and foreign research institutes or businesses related to traditional culture. This is meant to reinforce the abilities of all degree students to actively handle cultural property when working in the field.
