Course content

Whether your interest lies in museums, historic buildings, archaeological sites, landscapes or the material evidence of past lives more broadly, this course will equip you with the conceptual and analytical skills you need for a successful career in the heritage sector, in the UK or further afield.

The course will prepare you for advanced research into the global and local issues surrounding the management of cultural heritage, while also providing you with practical experience. The interdisciplinary nature of cultural heritage and museum studies means that if you have an interest in heritage and come from a background in history, archaeology, art history, literature or another related subject, this course will be suitable for you.

We are one of the leading centres in the world for the study of art and material culture, and the only centre in the UK concerned with the study of art worldwide. The impact of our research was rated second-highest in the UK for art history (REF2014).
