The Master Programme in the Humanities, specialising in Cultural Heritage and Sustainability, provides you with the analytical skills needed to manage cultural heritage in our increasingly complex, globalised and diversified world. The Humanities - Cultural Heritage and Sustainability programme is offered at Uppsala University.

About

The programme has a unique interdisciplinary profile where different perspectives on sustainability and cultural heritage are integrated. It will provide you with the competence needed to pursue an international career in the strategic management of cultural heritage.

Are you interested in cultural heritage and sustainable development? Then this is the Master’s programme for you! The aim of the programme is to provide an advanced understanding of how cultural heritage and sustainable development are linked: how can we preserve, use and develop cultural heritage in a sustainable way, and how can cultural heritage be used as driver for regional development?

The courses build upon research in conservation conducted by faculty involved in the programme. They will give you a broad introduction to the field of cultural heritage and sustainability, as well as specialisation in the following areas:

  • cultural heritage and regional development
  • cultural heritage in identity politics
  • climate change and energy efficiency, and
  • cultural heritage in peace and conflicts.

During the first year you will participate in a longer excursion in which you will get an understanding of how these themes are debated among scholars and practitioners. During year two you have the opportunity to shape the focus of the programme to suit your own interests and personal goals, either by choosing courses on your own or by doing an internship.
