Course summary

Heritage is about the future of what matters, protecting objects and practices that have meaning for communities and society for future generations. But in the face of immense social and planetary change, what future are we facing and how do the choices we make help to shape it? This Master’s degree equips heritage practitioners and policy professionals to think critically and strategically about the long-term futures of what society values. You will learn fundamental qualitative and quantitative research skills, designing research projects and writing to a high academic standard. You will gain practical expertise in foresight techniques, and understand what makes evidence relevant to policy teams. Students will work across a range of academic disciplines to explore concepts like complexity and emergence, and consider the different ways in which value is understood, assessed and protected in societies.

Careers

Graduates will have a diverse skill-set suited to senior or leaderships roles. As well as research skills, graduates will be competent in strategic foresight and have the ability to envision and work towards strategic outcomes. They will also have a critical understanding of the value different forms of evidence have for policy teams.

Employability

There is a recognised need within heritage policy and in the wider workplace for professionals with the capacity to anticipate and manage long-term change. The programme has been developed with input from Historic England and other relevant policy groups. It offers students opportunities to engage with authentic policy challenges, presenting research findings to members of national policy teams. Graduates will be equipped for senior roles in strategy advice, analyst, and research teams within heritage institutions and policy teams, and will be able to pursue opportunities in organisations concerned with social impact more generally, such as think-tanks, local government, foundations, or developers.
