What will I learn?

This distinctive course allows you to take your passion for culture and heritage, and turn it into a rewarding and sustainable career. Building on the core skills and knowledge embedded in the Arts degree, you’ll bring the richness and complexity of culture and heritage alive across its many forms – from the material, to the intangible and the digital.

You’ll explore heritage in a variety of global, social, cultural and political contexts, with a particular focus on Indigenous and First Nations issues. Your critical and technical skills will be developed while you engage with diverse cultures and communities, heritage places, landscapes and cultural collections, all within the unique location of Canberra, with its abundance of world-class museums and cultural institutions.

Study a Bachelor of Arts (Culture and Heritage) at UC and you will:

interpret and apply the principles and ethics of cultural heritage and conservation
work collaboratively in complex and sensitive environments, recognising the need to incorporate multiple perspectives in cultural practice
apply the technical skills and knowledge needed to manage, conserve and share heritage effectively
develop and integrate professional skills and discipline knowledge into changing professional, cultural and technological environments.
