    • develop knowledge of the contribution which heritage can make to the landscapes of the future, and understand how that contribution might be theorised and realised;
    • learn about the current state of historic landscape theory and practice, in the UK and more widely in Europe;
    • engage with national and international policy on heritage and landscapes, and emerging and future trends in policy and its implementation;
