Study Details

PGDip 1 year full-time

The programme draws upon cutting edge theory and adopts a global, interdisciplinary approach to considering why the past matters; how and why it is cared for in the present; and the ways in which it can inform the future. By using heritage as a lens through which to consider current global challenges such as climate change, conflict, and decolonisation, the PgDip will prepare you to compete in the growing field of heritage and consultancy.

You will gain theoretical and methodological training; experience the challenge of practical problem-based learning; have access to professionals in the field; gain hands-on expertise in-situ across different heritage contexts; complete work-based placements; and build sector relevant networks, all vital to future employment.
