DHeritage attracts students who are employed in tourism, planning, museums, archives, community history, archaeology, and social and cultural sustainability. It appeals to practitioners who want to reflect on and contribute to the latest thinking in what is a dynamic and ever-changing sector crucial to many economies and to local and national identities.
Our students follow the programme as part of a cohort, supported by research training and supervision shaped to their needs from across the disciplines of History, Education, Digital Humanities, Creative Writing, Creative Arts, Law, Business, and Tourism. Students select their topic and training according to individual needs and interests, and current developments in the field. Workshops cover interdisciplinary issues such as professional ethics, sustainability, cultural memory and heritage policy.
