It emphasizes on critical understanding of heritage, and holistic management approach to heritage sector. The areas of exploration within the curriculum include diverse range of heritage sectors spanning tangible and intangible, cultural and natural, historic and contemporary/living, and so on, but with a strong emphasis on holistic approach to heritage management.

Programme begins with a week-long ‘Inaugural Seminar’ prior to commencement of regular coursework. Each semester includes a workshop or a studio course where students engage in a real life scenario as their project work. At the end of the first semester, a week long field-immersion programme will enrich the students’ understanding of heritage issues in a given context. After the second semester, the students need to pursue a ten to twelve weeks long practicum – an internship programme with explicit learning objectives and a research paper. In the second year, students take elective courses as per their interest along with preparations for thesis work. The final semester is reserved for thesis work, which is expected to be presented at an international conference.
