WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The aim of the programme in Cultural Heritage and Sustainability, within the Master’s Programme in the Humanities, is to provide an advanced understanding of how cultural heritage and sustainable development are linked. It will help you answer questions on how we can preserve, use and develop cultural heritage in a sustainable way, and how cultural heritage can be used as a driver for regional development.
The courses build upon research in conservation conducted by faculty involved in the programme. They will give you a broad introduction to the field of cultural heritage and sustainability as well as specialist knowledge in the following areas:
- cultural heritage and regional development
- cultural heritage in identity politics
- climate change and energy efficiency, and
- cultural heritage in peace and conflicts.
During the first year you will participate in excursions in which you will get a better understanding of how these themes are debated among scholars and practitioners. During year two you have the opportunity to shape the focus of the programme to suit your own interests and personal goals, either by choosing courses on your own or by doing an internship.
