Study type Taught


Designed for a new generation of heritage leaders, this programme provides the interdisciplinary skills needed to deliver the heritage programmes and projects of the future. The programme combines aspects of cultural heritage - historic buildings, museums, collections, sites and landscapes - with the best heritage management and preventive conservation policies, projects, methodologies and practices.

Students are encouraged to take a long view of conservation and heritage management and challenged to define problems, set objectives and explore a range of sustainability issues and strategies. Concepts of value, sustainability, life expectancy, stewardship, ownership, vulnerability and risk are interwoven with the scientific study of historic materials, assemblies, technologies and systems.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of three core modules (90 credits), two optional modules (15 credits each), a dissertation (60 credits) and an optional project placement (not credit bearing).  

A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months) is offered.

Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MSc in Built Environment: Sustainable Heritage. Upon successful completion of 120 credits, you will be awarded a PG Dip in Built Environment: Sustainable Heritage.
