The MPhil in Heritage Studies introduces students to theories and methods used in heritage research and challenges them to think about the many ways the past is used in the present. By the end of the course, students are expected to understand the broader context in which the heritage sector operates, the methods employed by professionals in the field, and to be able to enter a range of professions within the heritage industry and beyond. All MPhil students in the Department of Archaeology take a Research Skills module and write a dissertation (15,000 words maximum). Students taking the MPhil in Heritage Studies will also select either three modules from a list of modules in Heritage Studies or two modules from this list and either a two-term option module or two one-term option modules from a list of modules offered by the Department of Archaeology.
