The Master of Arts (MA) in World Heritage Resource Management is currently recruiting to start in late September 2009. This is an exciting, innovative new programme - only one of five of its type in the world - that considers the issues of heritage in the cultural and natural fields, and particularly the management of World Heritage sites and other protected areas such as national parks and national monuments. The programme would suit undergraduates who wish to pursue a career in cultural or natural site management, tourism management, heritage planning, heritage education and interpretation or wish to eventually undertake reseach for a PhD. This is a truly international course, closely guided by UNESCO's World Heritage Convention, and will involve site visits, robust discussion, interaction with heritage practitioners, and a 6 weeks placement with a professional agency.

The MA in World Heritage Resource Management is provided by the School of Conservation Sciences with the support of the School of Services Management. Students wishing to investigate the opportunities the course provides should visit the programme website below.
