Course summary

**The past physically surrounds us: in landscapes, in places, people, museums, buildings and in the streets. People’s innate curiosity about the past is driving an expansion of the history and heritage industries.**These fields rely on people skilled in historical research and analysis, as well as those who understand the nature of the past in a modern post-colonial world. This dynamic and innovative programme will develop the skills you need to creatively use your discoveries in a range of public history and heritage contexts.**Gain transferable research skills**Over three years, you will learn the skills and methodologies of the historian, the relevance of historical awareness, and the importance of public history. You will also develop your understanding of the history and heritage sectors. You may have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in archives, museums, galleries, and other heritage organisations through a work-placement module. You graduate with a comprehensive portfolio of valuable and transferable knowledge and skills in public history and heritage, thus widening your career opportunities.**Bring your research to life**In your final year, you will create and deliver a real-world public history project derived from original historical research. This is where you will put into practice everything you have learned about conducting historical research. The project is designed to showcase and synthesise the knowledge, understanding, practical skills, and experience acquired throughout the programme. Overall, it provides invaluable preparation for a career working in public history.**Gain hands-on experience**In your second year, you take a placement in an organisation directly involved in working with history, for example, a museum, archive, or gallery. We have strong partnerships with an exciting range of these throughout London, including some local to Goldsmiths. You may also choose our History in Practice module, which runs all year and reflects on the theories which inform public history. Alternatively, you may also choose to specialise in Black British History, by combining a taught module on that subject with a Public History Placement. **Study with your career in mind**Alongside intellectual and personal development, we equip you with the skills and experience you need to progress into a rewarding career. This might be through our History in Practice work-placement module or through other career-orientated opportunities and forms of assessment.
