MA Heritage Studies


Course Description

Heritage Studies at the University of East London offers a flexible programme for students interested in engaging with advanced study at different points in their academic or professional careers, at a modern London university which is an internationally recognised centre of research excellence. The programme focuses on heritage in London and the interpretation of urban place. It provides students with an in-depth theoretical and practical understanding of oral history and memory. It includes numerous opportunities to develop skills in digital media production, and the opportunity to explore heritage issues in East London - one of the most diverse communities in the world, in a city with outstanding museum collections and heritage sites.

The MA is conducted within the vibrant research culture of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS). The School is internationally renowned and was awarded a ‘5’ rating in both the 1996 and 2001 HEFCE Research Assessment Exercises and an ‘excellent’ in its last Teaching Quality Audit. In RAE 2008 the School of Humanities and Social Sciences confirmed its status as one of the UK's leading university departments for research in Communication, Cultural and Media Studies, with 20% of research in this area judged to be 'world-leading' and a further 60% internationally excellent, and a position of 7th from 47 in the national rankings. Outputs in historical studies were also ranked as world-leading. This is an exceptional profile in the modern university sector. Staff research is characterised by a commitment to interdisciplinary inquiry and draws on insights from across the arts, humanities, computing and social sciences. The School is home to a number of research centres, including the Raphael Samuel History Centre (http://www.raphael-samuel.org.uk), and organises regular public seminars, lectures and international workshops and conferences at which postgraduate students are welcome.


UEL has one of the most diverse student bodies in the country. We strongly believe in an equality and diversity policy which states: “Within a spirit of respecting difference, our equality and diversity policies promise equal treatment and opportunity for all regardless of gender, sexuality, race, colour, disability, religion, age, and ethnic or national origin. We call on all members of our community to make a personal commitment to these aims."
