Cultural Heritage and International Development

The programme brings together the advanced postgraduate study of cultural heritage and international development to enable students to acquire the training and skills required in professional management of heritage in developing countries; the degree programme is taught jointly between the School of Art History and World Art Studies and the School of International Development. It is structured so as to explore the essentially interdisciplinary nature of cultural heritage and its management, with an emphasis on development studies, intangible heritage, and the global environment.
