Online University of Oxford    Department for Continuing Education

Part time October MA, Other Part-time: 2 years

About the course

This two-year part-time master's degree explores how ordinary things and places created since 1851 reveal fascinating traces of historical experience.

The programme is taught through blended learning, enabling participants to join from all over the world and to allow those with other commitments, such as full-time employment, to pursue postgraduate study with Oxford University.

The course aims to provide students with a framework of interpretative skills helpful to understanding design historically. Combining close visual and material analysis with archival research and historical methodologies, the course explores the design of objects for use and environments.
