In the specialisation Heritage and Society you explore the role of heritage in society. With our combination of education and research you lay a strong foundation for an (inter)national carreer in heritage management and policy.

Cultural heritage is important for a community. It plays a role in a people's identity and can determine the way they experience history. In this specialisation you will investigate the interaction between cultural heritage and society.

  • Reflect on the future of cultural heritage and the preservation choices that are being made;
  • Learn about the theoretical and practical sides of heritage policy from an archaeological perspective;
  • Dive into topical themes, by, for example, exploring the role of cultural heritage among migrant communities.

Heritage and Society is a specialisation of the Bachelor's programme in Archaeology. You will choose your specialisation at the end of the first year of your Bachelor's studies in Archaeology.
