The opportunities for heritage at UCS are fantastic, not least due to the interdisciplinary academic teams and the physical location of the campus on a waterfront which is a dynamically developing historic environment.

Suffolk (PRWEB UK) 12 November 2012

UCS is launching a Foundation Degree and BA (Hons) in Management of the Heritage Sector this year, and is planning postgraduate courses in the area too.

Dr Ian Baxter, Head of Division of Tourism, Heritage and Events, and Professor David Gill, Head of Division of Humanities, are also developing interdisciplinary research and engagement projects in heritage policy and advocacy, digital interpretation and tourism development.

Dr Baxter said: "The opportunities for heritage at UCS are fantastic, not least due to the interdisciplinary academic teams and the physical location of the campus on a waterfront which is a dynamically developing historic environment. We have support from across the region to develop UCS as a centre of expertise".

Kate Pugh, Chief Executive of The Heritage Alliance, said: "The Heritage Alliance is thrilled to welcome its first university member to the fold."
