The World Heritage Studies programme aims to provide students with a varied set of professional skills while at the same time allowing them to specialise in a particular area of their interest. Graduates will be qualified to work for international organisations, national authorities and private institutions where they will develop concepts and strategies for the conservation, rehabilitation and promotion of heritage sites.
As managers, they will be able to design and implement plans for the protection and development of heritage properties. They will create models for sustainable tourism around heritage sites and will contribute to a better understanding between visitors and local communities.
As consultants, they will work for museums and heritage sites, developing didactic concepts and presentation strategies for various target groups. They will act as ambassadors for a new understanding of World Heritage, aiming to broaden access to World Heritage for those who do not participate in or identify with traditional cultural activities.
