Heritage (BA) offers students a program that will explore different aspects of Heritage and the Heritage-related agencies, institutions and subjects across a range of discipline including history, archaeology and philosophy.
This program in Heritage (BA) will offer an innovative approach to study that combines an exploration of general and broadly based Heritage issues, with more specialist or particular aspects of the field.
The program will equip students with an understanding and appreciation of the wider field of Heritage, which includes a compulsory work placement at level 5 and time in the Roderic Bowen Library and Archives at level 6.
This provides students with both an attractive approach to study as well as equipping them with an appropriate set of skills and understandings applicable to a broad range of employments in the Heritage sector or cultural industries.
Grades are important. However, our offers are not solely based on academic results. We are interested in creative people that demonstrate a strong commitment to their chosen subject area and therefore we welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds.
To assess student suitability for their chosen course we normally arrange interviews for all applicants at which your skills, achievements and life experience will be considered as well as your qualifications.
