Applications open for DHeritage, the Professional Doctorate in Heritage

DHeritage is a unique and flexible part-time doctorate aimed at professionals who work in, or desire to work in, the heritage field broadly defined, whether in the private or the public sector. It is hosted by the School of Humanities and the Heritage Hub at the University of Hertfordshire, UK.

DHeritage attracts students who are employed in tourism, planning, museums, archives, community history, archaeology, and social and cultural sustainability. It appeals to practitioners who want to reflect on and contribute to the latest thinking in what is a dynamic and ever-changing sector crucial to many economies and to local and national identities.

Our students follow the programme as part of a cohort, supported by research training and supervision shaped to their needs from across the disciplines of History, Education, Digital Humanities, Creative Writing, Creative Arts, Law, Business, and Tourism. Students select their topic and training according to individual needs and interests, and current developments in the field. Workshops cover interdisciplinary issues such as professional ethics, sustainability, cultural memory and heritage policy.

Applications are now open, with a deadline of Monday May 15th, 2017. Interviews are planned for Wednesday June 14th, 2017. How to apply:
We are very happy to discuss applications, proposals and any questions you might have. We look forward to welcoming you to DHeritage!
