The MA programme in Sustainable Heritage Management at Aarhus University provides you with the knowledge and competencies you will need 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, the environment, and what remains from the past. We acknowledge that heritage is also an integral part of the present and a powerful resource for future-making. The Sustainable Heritage Management programme equips you, through engaging with critical theory and best practice, with the skills necessary to work plot your route through the exciting, expanding, and increasingly complex field of heritage studies and practice. You will be trained in a uniquely interdisciplinary environment to understand, designate, assess, retain, and sustain heritage sites and resources. Furthermore, you will be immersed in a critical understanding of, and the human social, political, and economic relationships in which heritage processes and practices are embedded, and gain the confidence to strategize how you develop, revise, and innovate the future shape of the sector.


The Sustainable Heritage Management programme qualifies you to analyse and respond ethically to the demands of heritage work, providing not only a sophisticated intellectual framework but also a practice-based toolbox of skills. You will learn to tackle the pressing challenges of heritage management, and heritage-focused research, on local and global scales.
