Program Description:

Heritage and Interpretation is a distance learning degree for current and future heritage professionals. It is particularly suitable for people working in, or looking for employment in the heritage sector, and who are seeking a postgraduate qualification that will provide the necessary skills and knowledge to shape, manage and interpret heritage sites and objects. The programme is global in outlook, and supports students with very different academic and professional backgrounds. It offers you the chance to focus in detail on processes of heritage making, the politics and uses of heritage across the world, and the creative practice of heritage interpretation. Through written work and discussion, you are able to tailor the programme to your particular interests, and chosen specialisms. A Master of Science (MSc) can be awarded in preference to a Master of Arts (MA) where the dissertation concerns a science collection or museum, or where the nature of the investigation can be termed ‘scientific’.
