Cultural Heritage Management

Our strong links with the heritage industry mean you can apply what you learn in real-world situations - during the course. Students work with organisations such as Historic England, the National Trust and regional museums - experience that can be a deciding factor when you compete for jobs in the sector. You can come to the course from either an archaeology or a business/management background. Taught in partnership with colleagues from the Sheffield University Management School, it provides training in heritage interpretation and conservation, as well as marketing and site management. You can expect a balanced timetable of lectures, seminars and practicals. You'll have access to specialist labs and world-class reference collections. Many of our masters courses include a fieldwork or project-based component. We integrate humanities and science-based approaches to nurture a deeper understanding. You'll have the opportunity to explore different viewpoints and make up your own mind about their strengths and weaknesses. We'll help you to develop your critical thinking as well as your practical skills. What we ask of you, as a member of our lively academic community, is that you challenge, question, and explore. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
