Arts and Heritage: Policy, Management and Education (MA)
This one-year programme is offered in both English and Dutch. A description of the Dutch language track, ‘Master Cultuur: Beleid, Behoud en Beheer’, is available in the Dutch section of the website.
The master’s programme in Arts and Heritage: Policy, Management and Education examines the concepts of ‘heritage’ and ‘art’ as expressions of past and present culture. Culture is defined in broad terms, encompassing both historical as well as contemporary artistic and cultural manifestations. In this context, heritage is regarded as a particular component of culture in the wider sense of the word.
You will develop insights into these key concepts and how their meaning has changed throughout history. You will also explore, evaluate and debate issues related to appreciation, interpretation, use, management and policy. In addition, you will acquire professional and academic skills in the practical organisation and development of artistic projects in the context of cultural management.
This interdisciplinary master’s programme has a strong international and professional orientation.

Important information for all 2012/2013 applicants:
As of September 2012, all master’s programmes in the field of the humanities at Dutch universities are subject to so-called “broad master’s labels”. The background of this operation is that at this point in time, there are over 250 master’s programmes in the humanities field offered throughout the Netherlands. To make the range of master’s programmes in the humanities more structured and less confusing to prospective students, all Dutch universities have agreed to file their master’s under overarching labels.
The implementation of the broad master labels will not have any influence on the content of the programmes. It is, however, important to know which label applies to the master’s programme of your choice since this is the name that will appear in Studielink and My UM when you apply. Moreover, the implementation of the labels will affect the diploma you receive upon graduation. Both the label and the programme name will appear on your diploma.
The master’s programme Arts and Heritage is filed under the label Arts & Culture (CROHO code 60087, track 1615_T6).
