Minor in Heritage Studies

The Department of Landscape Architecture, in collaboration with the Collaborative for Cultural Heritage Management and Policy (CHAMP), offers an interdisciplinary, graduate-level minor in Heritage Studies. This minor recognizes landscape as the most visible locus where displays and contestations of identity and ownership are inscribed and mediation takes place. The scope is international and comparative, especially in terms of the intersections among local, regional, national and international agendas in which cultural heritage issues intervene. CHAMP also offers an interdisciplinary, graduate-level minor in Museum Studies. These are intellectually linked by shared interests in the intersecting roles of heritage, place-making, nationalism, globalization, tourism, and other representational practices of identity assertion in contemporary society.
