Course content

The American accredited M.A. in Sustainable Cultural Heritage aims to train graduates to face the most important challenge in the heritage industry today: its longterm viability. Rome is at the center of debates about global heritage. With major international organizations in the city, as well as the greatest concentration of heritage monuments and works, nowhere in the world students can be better prepared for a career in this field.

Designed to fill the gap between the humanistic approach to cultural heritage and the business and management side, the program will shape a new generation of professionals in the heritage field by offering graduates in the Liberal Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences the opportunity to acquire the appropriate business skills that will enable them to capitalize upon their previous grounding in art, history and culture.

Thanks to AUR’s connections and collaborations with numerous cultural institutions both in Rome, Italy and the Mediterranean, this M.A. program will provide many opportunities for on-site learning, practical experience, research and professional contacts.

The M.A. in Sustainable Cultural Heritage has a duration of 15 months and entails 39 credits.
