University of East Anglia UEA
Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies
This course combines the theory and practice of managing cultural heritage (including archaeological sites, urban and other historic landscapes, great country houses etc). The MA is tailored to respond to the local and international need for qualified, responsible and adaptable cultural heritage professionals with highly developed conceptual and analytical skills. But the MA may also be taken as preparation for more advanced research into the global and local problems and issues surrounding the management of the cultural heritage.
Applicants require a good Honours degree at minimum 2.1 standard or equivalent. All applicants who are not a British national and/or whose 1st language is not English will need to demonstrate a suitable level of English language proficiency. This is equivalent to an IELTS 6.5 overall, with a minimum of 6.0 in all 4 components, although we do accept many other types of qualifications or tests. In accordance with the UK Border Agencies Tier 4 visa guidelines, we will also waive the English language requirement for applicants who meet the defined nationality test or who have completed a degree level course in one of the listed countries. For a full list of these, as well as the qualifications / tests that we will consider, please visit our website.
The taught part of the course is divided into 2 compulsory modules, including an introduction to cultural heritage and a module on the uses of cultural heritage. For those students with a special interest in Japanese heritage, equivalent modules will be available taught by a Japanese specialist. The more practical elements of heritage management are taught in modules on the practice of museums and cultural heritage. The modules include field trips.
Assessment methods include (but are not limited to): research seminars, gallery talks, essays, an 8,000 word heritage management plan, and a dissertation of up to 12,000 words.
There are a variety of scholarships, studentships and other awards available to those applying for places on our taught postgraduate degrees.
