Course summary

Overview

The programme draws upon cutting edge theory and adopts a global, interdisciplinary approach to considering why the past matters; how and why it is cared for in the present; and the ways in which it can inform the future. By using heritage as a lens through which to consider current global challenges such as climate change, conflict, and decolonisation, the MRes will prepare you to compete in the growing field of heritage and consultancy.

The programme incorporates regular opportunities to visit local heritage sites, giving you gain hands-on expertise in-situ across different heritage contexts. You will gain theoretical and methodological training, and acquire skills in designing and conducting a large-scale independent research project into a heritage topic of choice, with a 30,000 word dissertation. This will allow you to work in line with your individual interests and develop specific expertise in this area, providing excellent preparation for PhD study.

Based at our Penryn campus, this programme is convened by the Humanities department (History and English) and taught in collaboration with leading interdisciplinary researchers and industry specialists from across the University, enabling you to develop the skills relevant to real life consultancy.

You will additionally benefit from the way the course is enriched by an Industry Advisory Group, keeping our programme responsive to relevant heritage sector developments, and from our links with leading research centres for Environmental Arts and Humanities, and Environment and Sustainability.

Careers
