Statistics used for the data analysis include an arithmetic mean ( X ) and a standard deviation (S.D.). The study found that; 1. The result of the study on cultural management of students who register on cultural management subject after the class ( X = 33.59, S.D. = 2.34) is significantly higher than the time before they register ( X = 11.32, S.D. = 2.87) at 0.05%. 2. The capacity of students to implement a project by integrating a cultural capital within the university is mainly in a high level ( X = 2.68, S.D. = 0.35). The opinion of students toward a project based learning management for conservation is mainly in a level of “totally agree” ( X = 2.68, S.D. = 0.35).
