Our new global, interdisciplinary postgraduate programme MA International Heritage Management and Consultancy could help students interested in a career in the heritage sector realise their ambitions. It is also a perfect route for those already in work who would either like to transition into the sector or specialise in a particular role.

Based at our Penryn campus in Cornwall, you will consider current global challenges and undertake theoretical and methodological training designed to prepare you for real-life heritage work, which can include: project and site management, strategic and financial planning, disaster preparation and marketing.

The programme incorporates regular visits to national heritage sites and museums, enabling students to learn first-hand about heritage management from on-site experts. You will also gain direct experience on an inclusive international field course to Vancouver and Vancouver Island, Canada (read more below).

You can find out more about the programme on our postgraduate study pages which provides information about what you can expect from the course, as well as the specific modules available.

You can read our blog to discover more about heritage management or why not check out our recent Facebook Live Q&A session with Director and Senior Lecturer Dr Bryony Onciul.

Students will take part in our field course to Canada at the start of the third term, where you will visit Vancouver and Vancouver Island. Our field course offers a unique opportunity for you to explore issues of heritage, environment, industry and community, locating these issues in the context of key global challenges such as decolonisation, reconciliation, indigeneity, and climate change.

As part of the field course, you will learn from international professionals, specialists, and community members in-situ and in-context; visit world renowned heritage sites and museums; participate in different forms of tourism, such as ecotourism; and gain awareness of potential opportunities for, and threats to, the local heritage, culture, and environment. Through this process you will develop an understanding of a different cultural approach to heritage management and witness competing heritage agendas in action.

This varied field course includes workshops in the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia; an opportunity to experience ecotourism first-hand; visits to First Nations Cultural Centres (for example, U’mista Cultural Centre or Nuyumbalees); museums and galleries such as the Bill Reid Gallery; and meet and learn from heritage professionals on site visits.*

Your expenses for accommodation and travel are included in the cost of the programme.

*Please note that the exact itinerary can vary from year to year.
