About

The International Cultural Heritage Management MA course offered by Durham University aims to introduce you to the issues involved in global cultural heritage management as a foundation for both professional and academic paths. 

Overview

Course Learning and Teaching

The International Cultural Heritage Management MA course offered by Durham University is delivered through a mixture of lectures, seminars and webinars, tutorials and workshops with visits to relevant heritage sites.

Lectures underpin the core knowledge requirements of the degree by introducing students to key concepts, methodologies and analytical approaches. They also serve as examples of research-led critical analysis and applied expertise, thus demonstrating to students both subject-specific knowledge and the key skills necessary to acquire and communicate this. As well as more traditional podium-based approach, lectures are combined with interactive seminar-style discussions. These are delivered by specialists from within the Department and elsewhere in the University as well as from national and international heritage institutions and sites, including World Heritage Sites.

Webinars are used to introduce students to specific heritage sites and issues around the world in real-time debate with international professionals by video link. These case study presentations are followed by seminar discussions mediated by the module convenor. 

A variety of seminars take place in different modules with different formats and distinct learning goals.  This learning methodology encourages students to explore discussions in depth, learn to marshal their arguments in a group setting and respond appropriately to a diverse range of informed opinions. Students are exposed to, and expected to produce, a variety of different presentations in seminars and to contribute effectively and appropriately to the subsequent debate to encourage critical thinking. Formative assessment is given as relevant.
