A new MA programme in World Heritage Studies is being delivered by the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage at the University of Birmingham.
This one-year course offers students an opportunity to acquire both a deeper understanding of the concepts and processes surrounding World Heritage in its tangible and intangible forms, and the necessary knowledge and skills that will allow them to effectively manage World Heritage and its impacts in a sustainable way. It draws upon international cases and practical experience to provide students with an insight into the processes of World Heritage inscription and management.
It is linked to the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, one the UK’s first designated sites. It also features a visit to the World Heritage Centre at UNESCO, Paris.
