Professor Richard Oram: confident the new MSc will be “challenging, highly-focused and rewarding”.

People working in the heritage and tourism industries – or looking for a career in either sector – are being given the chance to improve their skills at the University of Stirling.

The University is launching a new Master’s degree in Environment, Heritage and Policy, starting this autumn.

A number of the places have been “fully-funded” by the Scottish Funding Council, meaning some students will have their tuition fees paid for them.

Professor Richard Oram, the deputy head of arts and humanities at the University, said: “The MSc will offer a solid foundation in the theory, practice and application of environmental history, heritage and policy – helping students gain a fascinating appreciation of the study of our cultural and natural heritage. It will include marketing as well as interpretative and presentation skills training.

“Students will be able to study either full or part-time, over 12 or 24 months. We hope this flexible approach – and the fully-funded places on offer - will attract people to find out more.”

Professor Oram was confident the new course would be “challenging, highly-focused and rewarding”.

He said: “This new Master’s course may suit graduates already working in the heritage or tourism sectors - who want to improve their skills and enhance their future employment prospects – or those who aspire to work in the sectors.”

Potential students can email:  or call Professor Oram on 01786 467580.

Applicants must have an upper second class Honours degree or better in History, Heritage, Geography or other relevant discipline from a university recognised by the University of Stirling.
