The Heritage Evidence, Foresight and Policy program from University College London (UCL) equips heritage practitioners and policy professionals to think critically and strategically about the long-term futures of what society values.


Heritage Evidence, Foresight and Policy program from University College London (UCL) will equip students to combine a deep understanding of what matters to society with the capacity to manage uncertainty and anticipate change. Professionals working, or who aspire to work, in heritage, social and cultural policy contexts will gain a unique skillset equipping them to support long-term decision-making in their organisation.  The programme draws on a wide interdisciplinary range of theoretical and methodological approaches, from strategic foresight, and from related disciplines like sociology, geography, and design, all of which have their own academic traditions of engaging with the future. 


The Heritage Evidence, Foresight and Policy MSc at UCL is the first of its kind, combing and deep understanding of social value with long-term perspectives to make critical decisions on what is maintained for future generations and how. Whilst learning an array of foresight techniques, you will also engage with broader theoretical and methodological resources to think critically about the future and how strategic foresight can be employed in heritage policy decisions.
