Course content

This unique one-year programme offers you the opportunity to study at the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage in the autumn semester, and at the Collaborative for Cultural Heritage Management and Policy, University of Illinois, in the spring semester. Education at both universities is complemented by study trips.

Academic staff at both institutions engage with you throughout the programme through on-site guest lectures as well as long-distance participation. Your work is evaluated by the international team of staff and your MA dissertation is co-supervised.

You will gain deep exposure to heritage issues in the two countries as well as benefiting from academic expertise in the heritage management field worldwide.

We also offer an International Heritage Management MA programme full-time at the University of Birmingham, or by distance learning over one or two years.
