Graduate Admissions

Course closed:

Heritage Studies is no longer accepting new applications.

The overall aim of the MPhil in Heritage Studies is to provide Master’s-level education in the broad field of Heritage Studies at the highest standard. This involves three goals:

  • 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.
  • To 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.
  • To 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.
