Overview

The 2-year MA programme prepares specialists capable of analysing cultural heritage and using it responsibly as a social and economic resource. Students can specialise in two fields: folklore and heritage analysis or craft studies.

The programme provides students with knowledge, skills and attitudes to:

  • unpack the process of heritage production and the workings of tradition in the context of cultural diversity and change;
  • act as a mediator between different interest groups in the field of intangible cultural heritage;
  • recognise and ethically apply cultural heritage as a resource in the public and non-governmental sectors, crafts, product design, tourism and various other areas of life.

Programme structure

Students take four core courses (30 ECTS), accompanied by MA seminars (12 ECTS), and choose to specialise either in the analysis of folklore and cultural heritage or in the study and application of the heritage of craft (15 ECTS).

Students collaborate with the faculty to tailor the content of the optional course module (18 ECTS) and of practical training (9 ECTS) towards their chosen career path.

An MA thesis or a more practically oriented MA project (30 ECTS) completes the programme.
