This MA course is the most comprehensive of its kind in England. It is provided by the internationally famous Centre for English Local History, at the University of Leicester. This Centre was founded by Professor W.G. Hoskins in 1948, and has long been at the forefront of the discipline, having had huge experience of postgraduate training at MA, MPhil and PhD levels. Its staff (who currently include three professors) are leaders in their subjects, and the ex-staff include scholars such as Alan Everitt, Joan Thirsk, Charles Phythian-Adams, Margaret Spufford and other prominent historians. Its students progress into many types of employment in heritage-related sectors, museums, record offices, local government, landscape management, further research, academic jobs, adult education, teaching, and associated areas of work. Many others have done the MA course for their own pleasure, developing their interests in family or local history. Many MA students have also gone on to do PhDs in the Centre.

The MA course aims to provide students with a training in `the Leicester approach' to local and regional history, and to equip them with the historical skills necessary to pursue research in this field. The MA course is comparative across the nation, grounded in an interest in landscapes and the communities associated with them, cultural in its concerns, sensitive to long-term chronologies, conceptually aware, and interdisciplinary in its methods. It is designed to furnish an up-to-date springboard into careers involving local history. Yet it also appeals to many whose interests are recreational, genealogical or family-oriented, who have leisure interests linked to landscape appreciation, or those who find knowledge of local history essential as a way of enlarging their interpretation and understanding of the world and communities around them.

The Centre for English Local History is accommodated in The Marc Fitch Historical Institute, three attractive Victorian villas near the main university campus. It contains an important library covering most English regions, an impressive map room, and many other resources and collections essential for local historical studies. The main University Library houses an exceptional local history collection covering all counties of England and Wales. These facilities make Leicester unique among provincial universities for the comprehensiveness of its holdings in local and regional history. Grants are available from a number of sources to assist students studying at the Centre.

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 programme offers you outstanding industry links with major collections including the National Media Museum, Birmingham City Library and the Pitt Rivers Museum.

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.
