The programme considers the wider place of heritage management in contemporary society and offers students the chance to undertake their own projects on a range of different subjects. Using both a British and a global approach, the theory and practice of cultural heritage and resource management is investigated.

The course uses experts drawn from across the heritage spectrum including museums and galleries; cultural tourism; theme parks; national, local and global heritage organisations; archives; libraries; and archaeological units. In addition, students are able to participate in the department’s own research projects, which have included archaeological sites in Winchester, Cornwall, Georgia, Armenia, Corsica, Barbados, Ethiopia and Egypt, and are encouraged to use their skills in enhancing and developing existing cultural heritage strategies in these locations.
