MA in Heritage Education


Course Description

This is at the cutting edge of heritage education and gives you the opportunity to take part in creative projects, focussed case studies, and applied research. You will consider heritage education and learning in its various forms and in a wide range of local, national and international contexts. This course will encourage you to work on various sites and alongside specialists and will help you develop the knowledge, skills and networks that will assist you in your future career.

The course is delivered flexibly through campus-based and on-line teaching and learning. It is designed for those already employed in the sector as well as those seeking to enter it. Studies are supported by a dedicated team of specialist tutors, and a well-developed and resourced virtual learning environment. You will benefit from other facilities and resources, such as the involvement of the University in managing the Sandford Award for Heritage Education.

This course offers awards of Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or the full MA Degree in Heritage Education.

What will you study -

In your first year you will study Contemporary issues in Heritage Education, Heritage Learning, The Visitor Experience and Research Skills. Those studying part-time will also take the Contemporary Issues module, followed by either Heritage Education or The Visitor Experience.

During your second year, you will produce a Dissertation. The Dissertation comprises the final module of the programme for those completing the MA Degree. Students studying part-time move onto either Heritage Learning or the Visitor Experience, plus the Research Skills module.

If you are studying part-time students you will normally complete the MA Degree in your third year, undertaking the Dissertation module. This is the culmination of your studies and an opportunity to explore your interests in the heritage education field.

“I chose this course because it was the change I needed. It has made me get out and about, volunteering at all sorts of different heritage sites and seeing how they operate.” Sally, MA in Heritage Education student
