MA/PGDip/PGCert in Public History

Course Description

MA Public History explores a range of forms of public history, both in UK and international contexts. It will be of interest to those working a variety of forms of public history, whether as independent researchers or museum and heritage professionals. Modules address debates in the histories and representations of Victorian Britain, war, conflict and commemoration, the built environment and conservation, family and micro-history. There are opportunities for work placements with regional and national institutions. Modules are available that develop the skills of communicating research findings in a variety of media. Full research training is provided and the course culminates in an independent research project whereby students can study in depth an area of public history of their own choice. The course enjoys strong links with a number of museums, archives and heritage sites.
