The African Programme in Museum and Heritage Studies is offered by the History Department in partnership with the Robben Island Museum, a world heritage site and the first new national museum in post-apartheid South Africa. The APMHS provides a broad programme in heritage training for those already in the sector as well as those who wish to enter this field. It is a broad vocational qualification, which provides a critical understanding of the sector as well as the competencies relevant to heritage work. Participants will engage in theoretical debates in the field of heritage while at the same time undertaking practical projects The principle is to ensure that students have the opportunity to explore a range of issues and approaches to heritage and museum studies, while enabling them to combine electives in areas of particular interest to them. Students are required to complete a core course on issues in museum and heritage studies and a research internship at a selected museum or heritage institution. The APMHS offers qualifications at the Postgraduate Diploma and Masters levels.
