FAQ

What sets the Cultural Resource Management Program apart from other academic or professional development programs?

Accessibility. Our broad selection of short on-campus and distance education courses and a variety of enrolment options makes it possible for you to balance academic study with personal and professional commitments.

Who would I learn with?

You’ll learn with museum and heritage professionals from across Canada, the US and around the world. Most participants are seeking to broaden their knowledge and to develop practical skills so they can work more effectively and shape their careers.

Who are your instructors?

Our instructors are distinguished professionals in the museum, heritage and cultural sectors. They draw on a combination of academic and professional experience throughout their courses.

Is this program suitable for me?

Our program is designed for people who are actively involved in professionally related museum and heritage activities. You are expected to have access to a museum, heritage site, or heritage agency, either as an employee or as a volunteer, to complete many course assignments and to consider your learning in practical contexts. As we offer university-accredited courses, you must also be able to complete the course assignments and readings and be comfortable learning at a university level.

What are my job prospects?

You’ll find our graduates working in every sector as curators, collection managers, programmers, interpreters, planners, managers, and directors.

Is there a co-op option?

Yes. If you have the flexibility to complete an additional four-month work placement as part of your diploma program, the co-operative education option will give you hands-on experience in a museum or heritage setting. You must be admitted to the diploma program Humanities, Fine Arts and Professional Writing (HFPW) Co-op. View more information.

What text books/materials and other resources do I need for courses?

On-campus courses:  learning materials and resources, including readings, will be sent to you a couple of weeks before the course start date. They’re included in the course fee.

If you’re taking a distance course you’ll need to purchase your coursepacks and/or textbooks from the UVic bookstore.

How do I pay for courses and textbooks?
  • Program and application fees, shipping, and textbooks:  cheque, money order or credit card.
  • Tuition for credit courses: cheque, money order, bank draft, or purchase order.
  • Non-credit participants may also use a credit card to pay for tuition.

You’ll need to pay a $100 tuition deposit with all course registrations. It’s credited toward your course tuition and only refunded if the course is cancelled or if you withdraw before the registration deadline.
