Heritage and Society (BA)

After graduation

With a lot of theoretical knowledge, practical experience, and your bachelor's degree in the pocket, you are ready for the next step: either entering the heritage job market or continuing your studies.

What are your skills with your bachelor's degree?

After three years of study, you have all the required knowledge of heritage, and you know about the theory and practice of heritage management and policy. You have the theoretical background needed to analyse your observations and hypotheses. Also, you are capable of reporting about your research. And you are well aware of the ethical aspects that are involved in working with cultural heritage.

Your career prospects

Where our alumni are employed after their studies depends on their chosen specialisations, personal interests and skills. Therefore it is extremely important to start thinking about your future well ahead of graduation. Do you want to continue your studies? Generally, a completed master's degree gives you a better chance of an (academic) job, but with a bachelor's degree you can enter the archaeological job market as well.
