The evidence of the past constantly surrounds us and is called upon, reshaped and reimagined in the present. This exciting Public History and Heritage Masters programme combines critical academic study of the role of history in the public sphere with practical experience and advanced training designed to prepare you for leadership roles in the heritage sector.

Heritage plays a key role in the global economy, driving international tourism and generating income for local communities. The heritage industry is now not only a major source of employment but one of the most frequent ways that members of the public come into contact with the past. Our online Public History and Heritage programme has been launched to help you make the most of the many career opportunities emerging in this ever growing and developing industry and gain practical experience and advanced training for heritage sector roles.

Strengthen your contacts in heritage and widen your industry knowledge

You will have the opportunity to work in industry in an organisation of your choice. This can be local and relevant to you with your passions and interests in mind. Our flourishing links with the heritage, creative and cultural industries on a global scale will give you access to producers of public history and heritage, such as local authorities, charitable trusts, businesses, community groups and private individuals. You will therefore gain unrivalled experience of the different practical, legal, commercial and management challenges facing the heritage sector today.

Bring heritage to life through the latest technology

In a world where technology is paramount it is important for the heritage industry to develop and embrace new technologies to continue to engage visitors and attract new customers. Throughout the programmes modules we prepare you for changes in the industry using exciting new technologies such as virtual reality and augmented reality to create your own virtual museum environment.

This programme has 3 intakes per year: September, January and May.
