Course content

The MA in Public History and Heritage (Extended) is a flexible programme designed to offer academic training and and employability in the fields of public history and heritage. We're delighted to be offering an Extended MA in Public History and Heritage in partnership with Appalachian State University. In addition to the standard MA Public History and Heritage programme, students will spend a semester in the beautiful surroundings of North Carolina. There will be opportunities to take both theoretical and practical options from ASU's humanities programme, and to explore the similarities and differences in local heritage. Appalachia has distinctive mining and music traditions ripe for comparison with Wales, or you may prefer to explore the practice of public history in the USA and the ways its history and heritage are represented. 

Key Features of the Public History and Heritage (Extended)

  • the opportunity for students to engage with external heritage organisations 
  • hands-on experience with staff projects in heritage and public history
  • a compulsory work placement module where students will gain practical experience in the heritage sector
  • optional practice-based dissertation
  • students can choose from a range of modules covering topics from Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to contemporary local history
  • for a taste of the region and its history as taught at ASU, check out their Center for Appalachian Studies

A key aspect of the Public History and Heritage (Extended) programme is the opportunity for students to engage both with external heritage organisations and with staff projects in heritage and public history. Modules on the Public History and Heritage (Extended) programme include options in heritage, public history, ancient history, ancient Egyptian culture, history, Welsh identities, media, museum theory, archive/communication practice, museum practice and a work placement.
