About this course

Explore specific heritage conservation skills in assessment, interpretation, management, formulation of policy, and documentation of culturally significant places. You will be introduced to methods and practices of conservation, designing and building new buildings in old settings, and the history, theory, law and policy of this unique area with career opportunities in both the public and private sector. Heritage Conservation teaches you the techniques, approaches and methodologies required to work as a heritage consultant in policy development or regulation enforcement, or as a cultural historian and commentator. This exciting field of study is much more than just the simple preservation of existing buildings. Instead, our Heritage Conservation program trains you to understand the social value and embedded capital of significant sites, and determine what should be preserved for future generations. Your degree in Heritage Conservation allows you to draw on our Faculty's extensive history in this profession, being the first university in the Asia-Pacific region to offer a program in Heritage Conservation. This program combines the technical and aesthetic principles of architecture and architectural history with the social value of our past. You will be educated in the use of new and old material, alteration design, additions and modifications to existing buildings, and the sustainable, ethical and equitable development of sites in light of its past uses. By engaging with history, your role as a heritage consultant is to provide value to building owners, visitors and cultural bodies, all of which have a shared interest in understanding, adapting and preserving our heritage. More detail on the Program (including course planner, credit request forms and timetable links) can be found at the Faculty of Architecture, Design & Planning home page .
