The following are answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the SFU online Professional Program in Heritage Resource Management. Please direct further questions to Program Director Adam N. Rorabaugh (firstname.lastname@example.org).
STUDENTS AND FACULTY
HOW MANY STUDENTS WILL BE ENROLLED IN EACH PROGRAM COHORT?
The target size for each HRM Program cohort is 8–16 candidates.
HOW MUCH CONTACT WILL HERITAGE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT STUDENTS HAVE WITH SFU FACULTY?
The Program’s four online courses are delivered by SFU faculty or HRM Program associates. Otherwise, a candidate’s level of faculty contact will depend on individual circumstances. If a candidate thesis is focused on SFU collections, faculty projects, or faculty research interests, then collaborations may be intensive and sustained. Those pursuing thesis topics not specifically connected with SFU faculty research interests or initiatives may have less contact.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM FACILITATE A SENSE OF COMMUNITY WITHIN EACH COHORT?
We encourage candidates to get to know one another, their HRM Program course instructors, and other SFU personnel during our in-person Program orientation in the first week of fall term. The Program’s online learning environment also fosters community and collaboration. Candidates may choose to create a private Facebook group as a gathering place for their cohort to get to know one another, exchange thoughts and ideas, and provide support.
