Students gain a critical understanding of World Heritage Sites – the nomination process, management, and forward planning: particular emphasis is placed on sustainable tourism and the need to engage local communities in their heritage. The role of cultural heritage within past and contemporary societies forms a key element of the Global Heritage programme at Bangor University and students are introduced to a range of issues central to current debates on the definition, diversity, and contested nature of heritage on a global and national scale.
Embedded in this Global Heritage MA is a strong training element to enhance career prospects. Workshops are provided on public history (approaches and community engagement; oral history (techniques and ethics); digital heritage sources; writing for the media; and heritage project management – all valuable transferable skills for employment in the heritage sector. The close proximity to Bangor University of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – ‘Castles and Town Walls of King Edward in Gwynedd’ and the newly inscribed ‘Slate Industries of North Wales’ is an asset to this programme and provide case study opportunities for students.
Students graduating with a Global Heritage MA are well-placed to embark on careers in tourism, heritage management, curation, community support and administration, and outreach education. More broadly, graduates can enter a wide range of employment which require skills of communication, analysis, and an understanding of human nature. These include teaching, researching, management and administration.
