Combining theory with practice
The MA programme in sustainable heritage management (SHM) at Aarhus University provides you with the knowledge and competencies needed to meet the multiple challenges of contemporary heritage policy, management and research.
Working with cultural and natural heritage means being conscious of, and taking responsibility for, the links between humans, our environment, and what remains from the past. We acknowledge that heritage is also an integral part of the present, and a potential resource for the future. The Sustainable Management programme equips you, through engaging with theory and best practice, with the skills necessary to work in the exciting, expanding and increasingly complex field of heritage. You will be trained in a uniquely interdisciplinary environment to understand, designate, assess, retain and sustain heritage and to develop, revise and innovate the future shapes of the sector.
In your second year of the Sustainable Management programme, you have the option to apply and develop your knowledge and skills in practice through an internship; so far our students have gained experience in areas as diverse as archives, museums, cultural agencies, historical reenactment, television, and cultural institutes interning around the world including in Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, the UK, the Caribbean, South Korea and Bali. In the final semester you will specialize, with an appropriate supervisor, to complete a substantial piece of research on an area of heritage that most interests you.
