The Sports History and Culture MA is a flexible course taught by staff in the world leading International Centre for Sports History and Culture (ICSHC), and will give you a firm understanding of all aspects of modern sport; from its traditional forms to the present day.

Why is sport so important in today's world? How can sport help us understand society and different cultures? What kinds of sources are available to the historian of sport and how can they be used? What role has sport played in the past and what role is it likely to play in the future? These are the kinds of questions you will analyse in this course. The programme offers you an interactive way to develop your knowledge and understanding of sport and history. It is taken as an e-based distance learning course, and you will be invited to attend seminars and conferences, should you be able to attend.

The distance learning route means that you will access study materials designed to support your coursework, in your own time and at your own pace using Blackboard (DMU's web based, virtual learning environment), and other online reading resources. There is a weekly lecture and/or activity, plus suggested additional reading. You will have a personal tutor and also deal with module leaders for each section of the course. There is provision for chat rooms in which you can discuss aspects of the course with your fellow students. We actively encourage you to attend our optional seminar series and other ICSHC events. In terms equipment all you need is a connection to the internet (to send and receive email) and a word processor capable of reading and writing Rich Text Format documents such as Microsoft Word, Appleworks or Star Office.

Our staff are among the leading names in the field of sport history. Their expertise will provide you with a challenging and rewarding intellectual experience leading to a valuable qualification. We have a wide range of sporting and cultural partnerships, including the Musée National du Sport in France, the National Football Museum in Manchester, Leicestershire County Cricket Club, Leicester City FC and many more.

The ICSHC team also have a wide international network of academic partners. The ICSHC recently worked in partnership with BBC Radio 4 on the major 30-part series on the history of sport in Britain. 'Sport and the British', which was narrated by the BBC's Clare Balding, was made in partnership with the ICSHC and was a flagship historical series for BBC Radio 4 in the Olympic year of 2012.

Many of our students have used their studies to develop careers in sports writing, sport development, management, the media and teaching. Others have gone on to undertake PhD research and pursue academic careers. A number have used their studies to publish work. We currently have a student on a six-month paid internship with the history management team at Adidas headquarters in Germany, while he completes the MA.

The Photographic History and Practice MA is uniquely focused on the social, cultural and material histories of photography. You will explore photographic history through primary source materials, including negatives, photographs, technical apparatus, ephemera and manuscripts, as well as new developments in digital research under the guidance of internationally recognised scholars, practitioners, and museum professionals.

The programme offers you outstanding industry links with major collections including the National Media Museum, Birmingham City Library and the Pitt Rivers Museum. It is aimed at those from a variety of disciplines including conservationists, archivists, historians of science and from various fields of visual studies; such as visual anthropology, photography or art history. Working closely with programme staff, you will enhance your handling skills, research methods, writing and public speaking that will equip you for a wide range of careers or for further study.

You will learn in a variety of different formats including lectures, workshops, tutorials and seminars, as well as group activities. The course is underpinned by an innovative wiki environment that is a space for sharing and collaboration between students and tutors, as well as for presentation of content and communication.

You will also attend a week-long archival residency at one of a number of major internationally-recognised photographic archives. Throughout the programme there are visits to different types of museums, libraries and archives that engage photographic history. Previous visits have included major exhibitions at Nottingham Contemporary, important private collections organising for international exhibition loans, and the Royal Photographic Collection at Windsor as it prepared for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The programme is delivered by a team of experienced tutors with international research profiles as well as visiting lecturers from museums, archives, collections and research institutions. These experts all approach photographic history from different perspectives, presenting important challenges to you, and enabling you to study both the materiality of photography and its relationship with the digital age.

The Photographic History and Practice MA provides you with a solid grounding of practical skills, theory and dialectics that will equip you for a wide range of careers in heritage industries and research. Some of our graduates have received fellowships to pursue PhDs here in the UK and abroad while others have embarked upon careers in curating, museum and gallery administration, digital cataloguing and publishing throughout Europe.
