MA in Heritage Education

Course Description

This course gives you the opportunity to review and 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. Your studies will encourage you to work on various sites and alongside specialists.

The course is delivered flexibly through campus-based and online 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. Students benefit from other facilities and resources, such as the involvement of the University in managing the highly regarded Sandford Award for Heritage Education.

You will be studying at the cutting edge of heritage education, gaining valuable practical experience and via a range of case- or site-based studies. The programme offers awards of Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or the full MA Degree in Heritage Education.

By the end of the course, you will be fully equipped to progress onto a variety of careers in the field of heritage education, or further study, with a repertoire of skills and knowledge behind you.

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
