Our Program 'Architectural and Cultural Heritage' at the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences is an amalgamation of Theory, Design, and Research and is closely connected with the region's UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the State ​Office for the Preservation of Historical Monuments in Saxony-Anhalt, and the State Archives in Saxony-Anhalt.
