This course provides students with a practical and conceptual foundation in heritage and museum studies. The course emphasises applied knowledge through two workshops delivered in association with industry partners, and the assessment aligned to associated activities. It further provides an overview of legal and policy frameworks, significance assessment, and interpretation and exhibition planning. The course takes a broad view of heritage aligned with recent global trends including synergies between nature and culture, tangible and intangible, state and community based heritage. This inclusive approach understands Aboriginal history, historic buildings, archaeological sites, national parks, art works, objects, stories, beliefs and landscapes as heritage; making this foundation course valuable to students of anthropology, archaeology, history, environmental management, tourism, writing and many other disciplines.
