Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Heritage Studies

Heritage includes almost anything that one generation hands down to the next, or anything from the past that people identify with.

It involves the use of the past in the present – in tourist attractions, commemorations, museum exhibitions, conservation plans, national identities, local economies, etc. Today, the historic environment sector supports 40,000 jobs in Ireland and accounts for €1.5 billion revenue annually.
