The Class is open to research students in the University of Oxford. It introduces them to the University’s resources for studying tangible cultural heritage – sites, monuments and objects. Senior members from Humanities, Social Sciences and Mathematics, Physical and Life Sciences, Museums and Collections give brief presentations to allow time for questions and discussions. The class has no written work and no examination. It does, however, have a social network community that was created specifically to enable students to share experiences and discuss research opportunities.

Cultural Heritage Graduate Class, Hilary Term 2014
During Hilary Term the University Engagement Programme will offer a number of museum sessions for Students of the Cultural Heritage Programme.
The Ashmolean Museum’s University Engagement Programme (UEP) was established in 2012 with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to further the partnership between the Ashmolean and the University’s faculties, and to enhance the impact of cross-disciplinary teaching and learning at Oxford. Building on the rich tradition of object teaching at Oxford in traditional subjects such as Archaeology and History of Art, the programme’s Teaching Curators foster innovative course collaborations across a wide range of departments, teaching with objects from the Museum’s world-class collections to offer valuable additional perspectives to students as they develop critical understanding of their chosen topics. The UEP is keen to engage students and faculty in the Museum, which is a great resource for almost any period of study.
In Hilary Term classes will be offered by
Friday 21 February 2 to 4 - Ancient Near East
Friday 28 February 2 to 4 - Aegean Bronze Age
Thursday 6 March 2.30 to 4 - Indus Vallery (Pakistan)
Friday 14 March 3.15 to 4.45 - Gandhara (Afghanistan & Pakistan)
