It provides an understanding of the relevance of current policy and policy-making bodies on a regional, national and international basis.

    A Work-based Project is undertaken within a heritage organisation of the participant's choice, which the participant is expected to initiate, negotiate and manage. The Dissertation provides an opportunity to conduct independent research within the field of heritage management.

    Throughout the programme, participants are encouraged to refer to and reflect on their own working situations and experiences.

    Careers range across the spectrum of the heritage sector, from museums to local authorities, government bodies to the voluntary sector. Graduates may take up management positions within a heritage organisation, or work as Marketing, Education, Programme or Development Officers.
