This programme is appropriate for people working or planning to work in conservation and recording agencies, museums, tourism, environmental education, archaeology and landscape design and planning. It seeks to deliver the critical skills that those working in the heritage sector require to find employment in the sector or to carry on to research in heritage. Delivered with the benefit of external speakers drawing on their own experiences of the sector and visits to heritage sites gives the programme a particularly rich learning environment.

Programme structure

You will study five core modules:

Critical Approaches to Heritage
Heritage Conservation Management
Heritage Management Practice
Heritage Interpretation
Research Skills and Methods
You will take your module over the course of two semesters and also attend a one-week residential study school. You complete the programme with a 15,000-word dissertation.

Heritage management programmes are taught in the ERI building on the Birmingham Campus, where dedicated research space is available to students. The study week is based at the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site in Shropshire, and is run jointly by the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust and the University.
