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

Why Study Archaeology and Heritage Practice with us?

Our course will enable you to explore how the past is managed and interpreted in contemporary society. The degree focuses on the situation in the UK in the context of wider European and global trends in cultural resource management.

Our course distinctively spans how the past is constructed in museums and a wide range of other heritage contexts. We focus on how archaeological heritage theory is put into operation, and we will give you the chance to gain advanced expertise in heritage debates and current applications. You will also have opportunities to develop your ideas and expertise through a Heritage Research Project and a Research Dissertation while working with professional heritage organisations.

The course will interest those who have first degrees in archaeology, history and/or heritage, but it is also ideal for all those who have an interest in the how and why the past is relevant today.
