Cultural heritage management is about how we remember, value, conserve and represent the past.

This innovative course combines the strengths of the Department of Archaeology and Management School to provide training in heritage interpretation and conservation, as well as marketing and site management. As such, the course is suitable for those with a background in history or archaeology who wish to apply their knowledge in a management context, and for those with an interest in management who wish to apply their skills in the distinctive field of cultural heritage.

Links with the heritage industry will form an integral feature of your studies, and you can expect to apply the principles you learn to real world situations during the course. Students have worked collaboratively with organisations such as English Heritage, the National Trust and many regional museums, with many then drawing on their experience to find jobs in the heritage sector in the UK and overseas.


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.
