MA Cultural Heritage and Resource Management at Winchester offers a perspective which, although grounded in UK heritage practice, is also situated within a wider global context and offers industry placements and project work abroad. The programme considers the wider place of heritage management in contemporary society and offers students the chance to undertake their own projects on a range of different subjects. Using both a British and a global approach, the theory and practice of cultural heritage and resource management is investigated. The course uses experts drawn from across the heritage spectrum including museums and galleries; cultural tourism; theme parks; national, local and global heritage organisations; archives; libraries; and archaeological units. In addition, students are able to participate in the department's own research projects, which have included archaeological sites in Winchester, Cornwall, Georgia, Armenia, Corsica, Barbados, Ethiopia and Egypt, and are encouraged to use their skills in enhancing and developing existing cultural heritage strategies in these locations.
Normally a first or second-class Honours degree or professional experience in the area of study. The MA in Cultural Heritage and Resource Management (CHARM) is run from the Archaeology Department but has broad appeal to applicants from all backgrounds. Previous applicants have included historians, artists, linguists and students from other walks of life. No prior knowledge is assumed, but an interest in the human (cultural) past in all its diversity, and by extension an interest in how people approach and appreciate their past, is essential.
