We are offering an innovative 60 EC international master's program in Applied Museum & Heritage Studies.

Engaged Professionalism
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.
