The Heritage Studies program brings together research and knowledge from various fields related to heritage preservation, with the aim of training future experts in cultural and natural heritage preservation.
Heritage Studies covers a vast field: from cultural heritage to natural heritage, as well as cultural landscapes. Within this field, the students will choose a particular area to focus on and research. If you have already decided an area to focus on, that is great. Or maybe you have a hard time deciding what to focus on?
Please do not worry. To support your studies and research, the Heritage Studies program covers three fields, in order to give you comprehensive knowledge about World Heritage theory and practice and, after graduating, to connect you to your future career.
