Content

Heritage is a global phenomenon with diverse economic, social, and political roles. It encompasses the surviving tangible and intangible traces of the past, but also the processes and practices that frame heritage in the present and produce particular kinds of futures.

The aim of this degree programme is to provide a critically informed interdisciplinary education in heritage, with two pathways. You may choose to specialise in one of these pathways or opt to take the broad programme without specialisation:

Cultural Heritage Studies; or Digital Heritage.

Shared core modules provide a foundation in current conceptual and theoretical debates about the nature of heritage and its importance in society, as well as practical issues relating to its conservation and management. Case studies, fieldtrips and input from heritage professionals introduce students to specific kinds of heritage and ‘real-world’ challenges, demands and opportunities.

Entry Requirements

Your Honours degree or equivalent should be in a relevant subject. Ideally students should have a 2:1 or above in their first degree. Students with a 2:2 will be considered, but the programme is not recommended for those with a low or borderline 2:2 (or equivalent) in their first degree.

If you don’t currently meet the academic requirements for this course, INTO University of Stirling offers a variety of preparation programmes that can earn you the qualifications and skills you need for direct entry.
