MA in Public History

The MA in Public History builds upon the well-established status of the School of History in the fields of commemoration and public history. Students will examine both the theoretical and practical elements of public history through the programme.

Students will work closely with historians active in public history and commemorations. Analysing the role of the public historian across multiple platforms, this course offers students the opportunity to build a tailored skillset which will allow them to disseminate history across multiple media and to consider how history can be utilised in informing public discourse and the shaping of policy in culture, education, politics, and the media.

 Through a mixture of academic and practical modules, students will be guided through the theory and application of public history. The course also offers the opportunity for students to undertake relevant work experience in podcasting, publishing, policy, and print media.
