You will participate in field trips and have the opportunity to work with local, national and international cultural heritage organisations to explore the lasting legacies of the period. Whether you are a graduate with an interest in nineteenth century literature and culture, a current or aspiring educational or cultural heritage professional, or seeking to develop expert knowledge in preparation for a PhD, this programme offers the study of an area of historical specialism that showcases how to apply a broad range of transferable skills to educational and cultural heritage settings and other employment environments.
