Course summary

This is the 4 year course which includes a Professional Placement Year.Investigate the ways in which we use the past in the present. It’s all around us – a source of delight, division and debate.Develop your understanding of the past and its uses in the present.- Work with historical sources – documents, objects, places.- Enhance your skills with our partner organisations – archives, museums, historic houses.- Explore how the past is celebrated, obscured and recreated. You’ll study of a wide range of historical subjects, places and periods with a particular focus on heritage and public history.The Heritage and Public History pathway offers you a solid grounding in historical skills, but extends them to encompass the analysis of places, objects, and buildings. You’ll consider:- How we turn ‘history’ into ‘heritage’- How cultural heritage has become such an important focus for study and debate- Who we think we are and how we negotiate our way through a complex world.Alongside developing a specialism in heritage and public history, you’ll gain practical experience. We’ll help prepare you for a possible career, through activities such as planning a project, writing for the general public, and a placement in a museum or historic house. The insights you gain here could be invaluable in a wide range of jobs, including in the heritage sector itself.**More about the Professional Placement Year**A Professional Placement Year (PPY), traditionally known as a sandwich year, is where a student undertakes a period of work with an external organisation for between 9-13 months.
