We are offering an innovative 60 EC international master's programme in Applied Museum & Heritage Studies.
The programme is designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to conduct socially engaged interventions in the international museum and heritage field. You will study how current societal transitions have an impact on and can be impacted by museum and heritage work. Based on real questions and real situations, you will discuss and conceptualise exhibitions, educational programmes, policies and community projects as cultural interventions in an ever-changing world. In line with current global developments, the three main themes running throughout the programme are sustainability, inclusivity and digitality.
The programme aims to give (future) museum and heritage professionals the knowledge and skills needed to help the sector, ranging from small grassroots organisations to well-established institutions, to fulfil their societal goals by means of meaningful interventions. Our graduates are to take (international) positions, as project leaders, section heads or as (independent) advisors, on the basis of their integrated vision on cultural heritage, ethics and societal issues.
