Course summary

The MPhil in Heritage Studies introduces students to theories and methods used in heritage research and challenges them to think about the many ways the past is used in the present. This programme aims to:

  • Enable students to attain a critical appreciation of the development of heritage as a public enterprise, its values and uses. By the end of the course, students are expected to understand the broader context in which the heritage sector operates, the methods employed by professionals in the field, and to be able to enter a range of professions within the heritage industry.
  • Enable students to think both reflectively and analytically about the field and the nature of heritage. By the end of the course, students are expected to be able to apply these to particular specialisations and be able to pursue independent research in their field of specialisation.
  • Give students training in a range of general, transferable skills, such as writing, presentation, research skills, and formulating and analysing arguments. By the end of the course, students are expected to be able to exercise these skills in any professional-level work which requires them.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, students are expected to understand the broader context in which the heritage sector operates, the methods employed by professionals in the field, and to be able to enter a range of professions within the heritage industry and beyond.
