About

The Sustainable Heritage MSc from University College London (UCL) introduces you to the latest conservation policies, projects, methodologies and practices in the context of historic buildings, sites, landscapes and collections.

Overview

Designed for a new generation of heritage leaders, this  Sustainable Heritage programme from University College London (UCL) provides the interdisciplinary skills needed to deliver the heritage projects of the future by approaching historic buildings, museums, collections, sites and landscapes with heritage management and conservation best practice.

Students are encouraged to take a long view of preservation 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 combined with the scientific study of historic materials, assemblies, technologies and systems.
