Course content

With this course we will support you as part of the next generation of leaders in the field, equipping you with the skills to contribute to the complex challenges of developing cultural heritage in an increasingly globalised and changeable world.

We have designed this degree to build upon our unique situation, living and working within a World Heritage Site - you will explore the concepts underlying the idea of cultural heritage and investigate the social, political, and economic impact of a variety of local, national, and international heritage organisations.

There are two routes through the MA:

• The Cultural Heritage Research route which concludes with a dissertation.

• The Professional Practice Route which concludes with an analytical case study report.

Core modules:

• Cultural Heritage, Communities and Identities

• Managing Cultural Heritage in Context

• Dissertation or Analytical Case Study Report.
