Course content

The MA in Public History and Heritage is a flexible programme designed to offer academic training and employability in the fields of public history and heritage. We’re delighted to be offering an Extended MA in Public History and Heritage in partnership with Appalachian State University. In addition to the standard MA programme, students will spend a semester in the beautiful surroundings of North Carolina. There will be opportunities to take both theoretical and practical options from ASU's humanities programme, and to explore the similarities and differences in local heritage. Appalachia has distinctive mining and music traditions ripe for comparison with Wales, or you may prefer to explore the practice of public history in the USA and the ways its history and heritage are represented.
