Urban and Cultural Heritage
About Urban and Cultural Heritage
The interpretation, management and conservation of urban and cultural heritage is increasingly a matter of urgency and significance for global cities and communities. Challenges for heritage professionals include the pressures of rapid urbanization; issues of economic and environmental sustainability; and social change. At the Melbourne School of Design we take an international perspective on the heritage of building, cities and landscapes, with a particular focus on Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Studies examine contemporary and theoretical approaches to heritage policy, regulation and practice, new approaches to digital technologies and heritage, issues of heritage significance within historical and cross-cultural contexts, cultural heritage and its social and economic impacts, including tourism, and heritage reconstruction. There is also the option to undertake a research project or industry internship.
Unique features include a cross-disciplinary and integrated approach to heritage, internship opportunities, flexible course structures, and teaching by industry partners and outstanding researchers.
