We ended the recruitment for the Academy of Heritage post-graduate studies


Studies at the Academy of Heritage are the only post-graduate studies in Poland with such a wide-ranging and comprehensive educational programme, devoted to contemporary management methods in cultural institutions, and the promotion of cultural heritage.

The academic staff of the Academy of Heritage comprises experts working at the Krakow University of Economics and Jagiellonian University as well as other key cultural institutions in Poland.

Outdoor workshops, which form part of the programme, allow the students to confront the acquired knowledge with their own experiences and with good practices applied by professionals already working in culture. The programme encompasses two kinds of workshops: on cultural management and heritage management.

As part of the studies various projects are analysed. We do not concentrate only on big institutions with large budgets. Students of the last edition visited, among others, the castle in Moszna, the Kłodzko Fortress, and the Museum of Paperworking in Duszniki-Zdrój.

The Academy of Heritage are studies with a 20-year long tradition. We have realized 16 editions, in which more than 300 students took part. Our programme is constantly updated to face the current challenges in the cultural sector.
