Master Applied Museum and Heritage Studies
We are offering an innovative 60 EC international master's program in Applied Museum & Heritage Studies.
The program is designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to conduct socially engaged interventions in the international museums and heritage field. You will study how current societal transitions have an impact on and can be impacted by museum and heritage work. On the basis of questions and cases from the field, you will discuss and conceptualize exhibitions, educational programs, 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 program are sustainability, inclusivity and digitality.
