This two-year full-time Comparative Heritage Studies (COHES) MA programme offers a wide range of knowledge on cultural heritage in literature, art, theatre, architecture, urban space, and sites of memory, particularly those found in Krakow and inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The COHES programme focuses on the multi-ethnic, multinational, multilingual nature of heritage, approaching it from three angles: Digital Heritage, Visual Heritage, and Comparative and Translated Heritage.
The knowledge gained by COHES graduates will allow them to broaden their understanding of the dynamics shaping heritage in the contemporary world, both in symbolic and material terms. Graduates will be prepared to identify and analyze social, cultural, and political actions that affect the recognition and protection of cultural heritage, as well as its management and education. They will receive qualifications to work in international cultural centers, particularly museums, archival/research, diplomatic, or academic institutes, publishing houses, and libraries. These studies will train young scholars to use interdisciplinary tools in a critical and comparative fashion, helping them to work in multilingual and multicultural environments.
The ranking lists reflect the applicants' final qualification results calculated on a scale from 0 to 100 on the basis of the following criteria:
- motivation letter (65%),
- description of academic and educational achievements (35%).
The application fee is 20 USD (or 75 PLN, or 18 EUR). The fee is paid separately for each registration and each registration has its own bank account number assigned for the payment.
Comparative Heritage Studies (COHES) MA program is free of charge for both Polish and non-Polish students.
