MA in Heritage Management
The MA in Heritage Management is an intensive three semester (one and a half academic year) postgraduate programme which uniquely combines the worlds of archaeology and business and is taught in Athens at Eleusina, an area of world-class archaeological significance. It focuses on teaching the skills required for the management of heritage sites across the world and how to effectively work with archaeologists, architects, conservators, marketing and education specialists while fundraising and supervising specific projects.
The MA in Heritage Management will give you the opportunity to combine tuition by renowned international academics with practical experience in the effective management and planning of an archaeological site. Through a large number of extracurricular activities you will be able to develop your academic and professional skills, acquire Greek as a foreign language and live in the exciting city of Athens. The programme is taught next to the world-class site of Eleusina, one of the religious centres of Athens, and close to many other important sites including the Acropolis, Ancient Corinth, Nemea and Thebes. Teaching is through lectures and small group seminars. Part of the instruction will be done on site so that students gain hands-on experience and understand the issues involved. In the second half of the academic period students will work on actual world-wide projects.
This new master’s programme is a collaborative dual award from the University of Kent in UK and the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) in Greece, a partnership that ensures world-class tuition and an interdisciplinary learning environment. A critical element in the local dynamism and global relevance of the programme is provided by the Initiative for Heritage Conservancy, an innovative education and research project (supported by prominent international and Greek bodies and philanthropists) that creates its own opportunities in the field.
