Introduction

Cultural Heritage and Resource Management considers the wider place of heritage management in contemporary society and offers you the chance to undertake your own projects on a range of different subjects. You investigate the theory and practice of cultural heritage and resource management from both a British and a global approach. Teaching comes from experts with specialisms in museums and galleries, cultural tourism, theme parks, national, local and global heritage organisations, archives, libraries, and archaeological units.

You have opportunities to participate in the department’s own research projects, which have included archaeological sites in Winchester, Cornwall, Georgia, Armenia, Corsica, Barbados, Ethiopia and Egypt, and are encouraged to use your skills in enhancing and developing existing cultural heritage strategies in these locations. The course offers a perspective which, although grounded in UK heritage practice, is also situated within a wider global context and offers industry placements and project work abroad.Core modules include Cultural Heritage and Resource Management: An Introduction, Issues in Global Cultural Heritage, and Management in Heritage Organisations. Choose and optional module from a wide range including Mediterranean Landscape Studies, The Archaeology of Winchester, Religion, Magic and Esoteric Traditions in Post-Medieval Britain and Caribbean Peoples and Cultures. A placement module, based locally or abroad, allows you to gain practical training in the industry. Placements may involve work experience in a museum, gallery, historic property or archaeological unit/research project. There is also a dissertation, based on your original research, completed with full support and guidance from a tutor.
