Course Summary

Our MA Applied Heritage Studies course offers critical enquiry of, and practical engagement with, the increasingly diverse heritage sector.

As the heritage sector transforms, with an increasingly diverse range of agencies and organisations drawing on the past and mobilising it in different ways, this course combines critical enquiry with practical experience to understand and engage with the changing dynamics of the sector.

Why study with us

  • We have good connections with industry specialists from a variety of heritage institutions and providers across the region, who have helped design the programme.
  • We examine community-based heritage, as well as institutional providers.
  • While broad in scope, there is particular emphasis on community engagement, digital heritage and heritage in the creative industries.

Future careers

The course is intended for those planning a career in heritage, and for those already working in the sector.

For the former, it allows the development of insights and practical skills to plan a route into the sector.

For the latter, it enables professional development through skills enhancement and location of specific experience within a wider context. PhD routes are also available.

Modules

This module analyses the contested nature of heritage and its applications in a range of historic and contemporary settings. It evaluates the variety of ways in which the past is drawn on, mobilised, represented and debated by different constituencies.
