Gain hands-on practical experience in the fundamentals of cultural heritage management in Jordan. This 5-week residential course (June 23rd-July 26th) has been designed to address some of the most challenging and significant issues facing the international cultural heritage sector today. Participants will engage with local communities, national authorities, government officials, and heritage professionals to understand the complexities of successfully managing heritage sites in ways that more fully account for their wider social significance. Weekly modules are built around a mix of site visits, field research, lectures, group discussions, and written assignments. Located in Madaba, the IHP Heritage Management Field Program includes working visits to Petra, Jerash, the Dead Sea, Amman, and Umm El-Jimal. The course benefits from a number of local partnerships, including the Madaba Plains Project at Tall Hisban run by Andrews University and Sela for Vocational Training and Protection of Cultural Heritage.
