The purpose of the course is to introduce the students to ethnological aspects of identification and recognition of cultural and natural heritage and teach them how to use such knowledge in practice and how to develop specific and compatible work methods that apply in particularly to the interdisciplinary monument protection activity. The course also focuses on the strengthening and development of traditional protection competences by disciplines and the introduction of contemporary ethnological aspects on protected areas, heritage and monuments.
