  • Medieval and Early Modern
  • Modern
  • Heritage
  • Digital History

Each of the pathways consists of five taught modules, one of which prepares students for graduate research and a 20,000-word dissertation.

The programme and a range of activities within the Department support the creation of a lively and stimulating student experience. In addition to taught modules and supervision, the Department encourages MA students to attend research seminars, conferences, training events, reading groups and social events run by the department.

The Department prides itself on its placement modules which allow students to build skills in heritage studies and public engagement. The programme also includes an opportunity to undertake an assessed placement in either a primary or secondary school.
