(TAP)- Nine Mediterranean universities (4 Tunisian and 5 European) announced, during an information meeting held, on Wednesday in Tunis, the launch of an innovative international professional Master in communication and enhancement of cultural heritage in the Mediterranean, from the academic year 2020/2021, as part of the "Erasmus+ CUDIMHA" project.

According to the organisers, this master degree aims to set up an innovative academic curriculum in the field of communication and enhancement of cultural heritage that will enable the modernisation of teaching in Tunisian universities and openness to modern learning techniques.

"It will also enable students and all professional actors in this project to acquire high skills so that they can meet the needs of the labour market and fight unemployment," they said.

Pedagogical coordinator of the "Erasmus+ CUDIMHA" project in Tunisia, Tarak Bouattour, indicated that the objective of this project is to create a professional process for students in the different disciplines, based on the enhancement of the common cultural heritage in North Africa (Tunisia) and the countries of Southern Europe and the development of skills in information and communication technology through innovative teaching units.

Bouattour pointed out that the launch of this Master degree will be carried out in the form of courses combining face-to-face and distance learning, for the benefit of 85 students, 52 civil servants and 25 other candidates not belonging to higher education institutions in Tunisia and the countries of the European Union.

He explained that the Master programme includes 18 teaching modules with 6 modules per semester, workshops and teaching projects to be held in archaeological sites, museums and associations working in the archaeological and artistic sectors.
