 The School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester offers a range of postgraduate courses, both full time campus-based courses and those delivered part time at a distance.
Our recently developed MA / postgraduate diploma in Heritage and Interpretation is an innovative and critical, distance learning programme in heritage studies. Global in outlook and drawing on leading edge scholarly and professional research, the course aims to be stimulating for students from a broad range of academic and career backgrounds.
The course offers you the opportunity to focus in detail on the processes of heritage making, the politics and uses of heritage across the world, and the concepts, theories and creative practice of heritage interpretation. Through written work and discussion, you are able to tailor the programme to your particular interests and chosen specialisms, and to develop a diversity of important, intellectual and practical, skills and knowledge.
Particularly suitable for people working in, or looking for employment in, the heritage sector, this is a postgraduate course that will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge to shape, manage and interpret heritage sites and objects.
This programme will also provide an excellent preparation if you wish to go on to pursue PhD research in the Heritage and Interpretation area.
Other programmes available include:
MA / MSc / PGDip Museum Studies
MA / PGDip Art Museum and Gallery Studies
MA / PGDip Learning and Visitor Studies in Museums and Galeries
