Heritage and Interpretation MSc
This degree will provide you with the skills and knowledge to shape, manage and interpret heritage sites and objects and become an effective, critical and creative heritage professional.
You will look in-depth at the processes of heritage making, the politics and uses of heritage across the world, and the concepts, theories and creative practice of heritage interpretation.
This course will develop your critical and creative thinking skills and encourage you to engage with the literature, case examples and with other students whilst reflecting on your own heritage and interpretation interests and experiences.
You will take four core modules and, if you are taking the MA/MSc, complete a dissertation on a topic of your choice. This is your chance to delve into your particular interests and extend your expertise. For many, it is the most exciting part of the course, as a self-directed opportunity to contribute new ideas, new knowledge, or critique existing scholarship or practice at an advanced academic level.
By taking the distance learning course, you have the flexibility to fit studying around your existing work and family commitments. Museum Studies at Leicester works with a team of highly skilled Associate Tutors, all of whom are experienced museum and heritage professionals and you will receive excellent support throughout your studies.
This course will especially suit you if you are working in, or looking for employment in, the heritage sector and will also provide an excellent preparation if you wish to go on to pursue PhD research in the Heritage and Interpretation area.
