International Heritage Management MA


Course Description

The MA in International Heritage Management is a well-established and respected programme based on a unique partnership between a leading research University and one of the largest independent museums in the UK, the Ironbridge Gorge Museums Trust.

It offers you the opportunity to engage with a rich and diverse international research community based at the University and researching many aspects of heritage and its management across the world, and the practical experience of the Museum Trust in running heritage attractions. Through a combination of lectures provided by experts in their field and a programme of study visits, you engage with diverse aspects of heritage management and research approaches that will enable you to progress in the sector.

You will study six core modules:

Critical Approaches to Heritage
Heritage Conservation Management
Heritage Management Practice
Heritage Interpretation
Research Skills and Methods
Assessed Study Week

You will take your modules over the course of two semesters. A one-week residential study school takes place in the second semester, based in accommodation provided by the University. You complete the programme with a 15,000-word dissertation.

Our heritage management programmes are taught in the ERI building on the Birmingham Campus, where dedicated research space is available to students.
