Dual Master
Heritage and Memory Studies (Heritage Studies)
Vergelijk

This specialisation covers three main areas of restitution debates:

  • illicit trade and looted objects in the contexts of archeology;
  • World War II; and
  • the colonial past. 

Through various courses and an internship the students are prepared for work in the field of Restitution Studies, combining academic reflection and extensive knowledge with relevant, practice-based skills. We expect students to have a background in archaeology, art history, history or another relevant Bachelor's.
