Course content

The Master's in Archaeology and Heritage Practice provides tailored training for a career in archaeological heritage.

How is the archaeological past managed and interpreted in the UK today? Our MA in Archaeology and Heritage Practice will allow you to investigate and critically appraise how the heritage industry and museums operate and communicate, focusing on archaeological sites and collections in the UK, and using real-life projects.
Focusing on the UK but also appraising wider European and global themes and trends, our course explores how the past is managed and interpreted in contemporary society.
Our focus is on archaeological heritage, enabling you to explore museums and a wide range of other heritage contexts. We utilise field trips to explore case studies from Chester, North Wales, West Midlands and North West England.
You will have the chance to acquire advanced expertise in heritage debates and their current applications. You will also have opportunities to develop your ideas and expertise through a Research Project and a Research Dissertation and have opportunities to work with professional heritage organisations.
