Heritage and Memory Studies at the University of Amsterdam is an interdisciplinary programme taught by cultural historians, art historians, architectural historians, archaeologists and sociologists.

What role does the heritage cult play in our relationship with the past? How does it relate to the classic canon of art and culture, the conservation of archaeological records, monuments, interiors and works of art, national and European cultural policy, the rapidly growing culture and heritage tourism sector and the issue of multiculturalism and personal or national identity? These questions are central to the Master's programme in Heritage and Memory Studies.
As in the Anglo-Saxon approach to 'Heritage Studies', you will study heritage from a cultural-historic and spatial perspective. You will research the various meanings attached to heritage in a museological and educational context (i.e. listed buildings, theme parks, visual media and tourism). How to deal with the inherent contradictions of historical 'layering', authenticity, museological preservation, management of national heritage artefacts and the tourist experience are among the key issues in this programme. Heritage and Memory Studies is a dual Master's programme, i.e. it serves as an academic preparation for a specific profession. The internship is an important part of the programme.
