SCHOOL OF HUMANITIES
Higher Certificate in Heritage Studies
Period of study: 1 Year
This course provides students with a theoretical and practical grounding of knowledge and skills about the heritage sector.
A key benefit is that this Certificate provides an opportunity for studying further in heritage or another discipline. This Certificate would enable a pathway for ongoing learning and succeessful graduates could enter one of the various undergraduate degree course such as the B.A. or B. Ed. Degrees. We are keen to produce students with a strong ability for independent thinking who can be prepared for this level of learning.
The skills developed would encourage work in diverse roles within national and provincial heritage management bodies or privately-managed heritage organisations. This could include roles from administration in heritage institutions such as museums. Other possible roles could include assisting in archival work in a wide range of institutions including universities, public and private bodies, or working within the tourism industry.
