Course content

This programme is appropriate for people working or planning to work in conservation and recording agencies, museums, tourism, environmental education, archaeology and landscape design and planning. It seeks to deliver the critical skills that those working in the heritage sector require to find employment in the sector or to carry on to research in heritage. Delivered with the benefit of external speakers drawing on their own experiences of the sector and visits to heritage sites gives the programme a particularly rich learning environment.

You will take five core modules:

  • Critical Approaches to Heritage
  • Heritage Conservation Management
  • Heritage Management Practice
  • Heritage Interpretation
  • Research Skills and Methods

You will take your modules over the course of two semesters and also attend a one-week residential study school. You complete the programme with a 15,000-word dissertation.
