Culture enables and facilitates multiple interconnections at both a theoretical and applied level. This explains students’ achievement and absorption capacity, as demonstrated by international case studies with respect to undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

The Hellenic Open University offers this MA course aiming at contributing to the cultivation, empowerment and development at the national and local levels at this critical juncture, taking into consideration the international experience. Moreover, as a reaction to the challenges of globalization, as well as for reasons of promotion of cultural heritage and the arts, this course aims at training and familiarizing students with the theoretical framework by adopting innovative educational strategies.

  • Development of theoretical, aesthetic, and technological methods of cultural enhancement, as well as spatial design suitable for the Greek landscape.
  • Study of the developmental dimension/aspects of Greek art and cultural heritage.

The program aims to contribute educationally and research-wise to the following:
