Course content

This programme provides an advanced qualification in heritage management for those seeking qualifications in this sector. It equips you with the skills needed for museums work, conservation and regeneration, the management of historic buildings and landscapes, and cultural tourism.

You will take five core modules:

  • Critical Approaches to Heritage
  • Heritage Conservation Management
  • Business Management and Finance for Heritage
  • Heritage Marketing
  • Heritage Interpretation

Each module lasts two weeks. You will also attend two five-day Study Schools (one each year) and complete a 15,000-word dissertation. The Study Schools are extremely valuable in reinforcing elements of the programme you have just studied and provides an excellent opportunity to socialise with your fellow students and tutors.
