MA Heritage Studies

The programme takes a wide and inclusive approach to public history and heritage that embraces the street and the internet as well as the museum or exhibition gallery. The courses have a strong focus on memory, oral history and multi-media production – all rapidly expanding areas of heritage practice. This programme is designed to equip you with key skills in researching, interpreting and communicating history through a variety of media. It affords its students an outstanding opportunity to develop the skills necessary to produce digital media and students can choose to submit a dissertation or a practice based project/exhibition. A series of other postgraduate qualifications (certificate, diploma) are available for those who wish to take fewer or stand-alone modules. Courses run in the evenings and programmes can be taken full or part time. This MA offers potential career opportunities in museum and heritage, tourism, academic research, journalism, libraries and archives, education, broadcasting and new media.

The course is convened by the Raphael Samuel History Centre and is taught at the University of East London and Birkbeck. Last year the external examiner described the programme as ‘world class’.

Student Testimonial:

“UEL’s MA in Heritage Studies was rigorous and stimulating academically and gave me the opportunity and encouragement to develop practical skills… this is an original, thorough, and carefully-constructed syllabus, taught by people who are deeply engaged with their subject and able to communicate that enthusiasm to students. For those who want a career in the heritage industry, the course provides lots of opportunities to find jobs and placements in museums and other heritage organisations. I couldn’t recommend the MA more highly; it was the perfect course for me.”
