Course summary

History surrounds us: in museums and galleries, streets and parks, and in the lived experiences of communities. Combine your love for history with the creative and practical skills needed to work in the heritage and cultural management sectors.One of the first in the world, this degree teaches you to be a historian and a cultural manager/entrepreneur. By combining these two skillsets, you will be empowered to carry out historical research, and to creatively communicate history and heritage to the public in accessible and engaging ways.Over three years, you will hone in on your historical interests and produce independent original research in these areas. You will also gain valuable cultural management skills, ranging from events management, budgeting, and fundraising, to audience development, and public engagement.This programme allows you to explore your passion for history and learn about cultural and heritage management, all while gaining the skills you need to land a career doing something you love. Along with intellectual curiosity, this degree has a clear focus on employability, leaving you well-equipped to seek work in historical and cultural management. This includes careers in historical, national heritage, or non-profit organisations, local history museums, as well as freelance entrepreneurial work.**Based in London**London is home to communities from countless different cultures, each with their own history and heritage. You will have the opportunity to explore history and heritage from a local perspective, and learn to place it in a global context.**Practical Hands-on Experience**This programme, jointly run by the Department of History and the Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICCE), offers many opportunities for real-world cultural heritage management experience. In your second year, you will embark on a work placement in a cultural organisation, like a museum, gallery, or non-profit organisation.**Bring your research to life!**In your third year, you will use what you have learned during your placement and your other studies to shape a final interdisciplinary history and heritage project. This is where you will put into practice everything you have learned about conducting historical research. You will also draw on the cultural management skills learned in your ICCE modules, and put these into practice in the real world. Your project could include an exhibition, a film, a walking tour, or a podcast, for example; you decide! You will be assessed in equal parts on the quality of your research, and on your ability to bring it into the real world, manage it, and make it accessible to the public.
