This programme provides an advanced qualification in heritage management for those seeking qualifications in this sector. It equips you with the skills needed for museums work, conservation and regeneration, the management of historic buildings and landscapes, and cultural tourism.
This programme is managed by the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage, run jointly by the University and the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust, and draws on the experience of one of the largest independent museums in Britain.
You will study five core modules:
- Critical Approaches to Heritage
- Heritage Conservation Management
- Business Management and Finance for Heritage
- Heritage Marketing
- Heritage Interpretation
Each module lasts two weeks. You will also attend two five-day Study Schools (one each year) and complete a 15,000-word dissertation. The Study Schools are extremely valuable in reinforcing elements of the programme you have just studied and provides an excellent opportunity to socialise with your fellow students and tutors.
Most modules are assessed by a 4,000-word report-style assignment.
