Announcement of a New Program in Cultural Heritage Management

MA International Cultural Heritage Management Department of Archaeology, Durham University, England

Durham University is launching a new MA in International Cultural Heritage Management, designed for people interested in exploring how cultural heritage shapes and reflects people’s lives, hopes and memories around the world and interested in contributing to the complex challenges of developing cultural heritage in a changing world. This programme aims to introduce students to the issues involved in global cultural heritage management as a foundation for both professional and academic future paths. It builds on Durham University’s unique situation, living and studying within a World Heritage Site, to examine tangible and intangible heritage with an international, national and local focus. Students will explore the concepts underlying the idea of cultural heritage and investigate the social, political and economic impact of a variety of heritage organisations using international case studies, normally undertake a placement and choose either a detailed management plan or a dissertation to complete their degree.
A few places are still available for the October 2013 entry, together with some bursary funding to support international (non-EU) students’ fees.

To learn more about the MA, please contact Dr Mary M Brooks, Director, MA International Cultural Heritage Management at mary.brooks@durham.ac.uk to arrange for an informal discussion by telephone or skype.
