Master in Cultural Heritage Management



In recent years, public cultural policies and the increased social interest in heritage has resulted in the creation and expansion of numerous heritage institutions and cultural organizations that are in need of trained professionals in the fields of marketing and advertising, conservation and heritage management.


The Master offers professional training for work in museums, heritage institutions, public entities and cultural organizations. Additionally, course content includes professional training for new and future professions related to heritage management.


The goal of the Master is to create professionals by offering students practical and theoretical training that will give them the tools necessary to succeed in the professional field of heritage.


Two Tracks offered by the Master:


1) Professional. Dedicated to training specialists in management, and conservation and preservation of cultural heritage.


2) Investigation. Dedicated to the training of students committed to investigating fields such as Museology, Management of Cultural Heritage, Museography, Public Studies, etc. Graduates of the investigation track may continue their studies and pursue a “Doctor of Management of Culture and Heritage”.


The Master is interdisciplinary (with the participation and supervision by professors from 14 different departments), and inter-faculty (with professors from seven faculties: Geography and History, Law, Geology, Economy and Business, Education, Professor Training, and Library and Documentation).  The Master of Management of Cultural Heritage is directed and coordinated by the University of Barcelona’s Department of Geography and History.


Additionally, many of the Master’s Professors are Visiting Professors from Spain and abroad. This variety of international expertise is the result of the numerous professional connections established by the Master, most importantly with museums, governments, and businesses committed to heritage management.  The Master’s education and training program is internationally recognized.


Although the Master has been offered since 1995-1996, the current Master of Management of Cultural Heritage, under the 90-credit structure, has been offered since 2006-2007. The Master is offered conjointly with the Master of Cultural Management, sharing several elective courses. The Master has two tracks: Professional and Investigation, differentiated by the second course.


The following departments provide the interdisciplinary teaching method and professional focus of the Master:


  • Cultural Anthropology and American and African History
  • Art History
  • Pre-History, Ancient History and Archaeology
  • Social Sciences and Education
  • Political Economy and Public Works
  • Library and Documentation
  • Economy and Business Organization
  • Social Work and Social Services
  • Education Theory and History
  • Methodology of Behavioral Sciences
  • Education and Learning
  • Accounting
  • Constitutional Law and Political Science
  • Geology, Paleontology and Marine Science
  • Mineral Deposits, Mineralogy and Gemology


An important aspect of the Master is its interdisciplinary structure. This structure relies on the rich course materials compiled by the University Professors from their diverse fields of expertise.
