University of Limerick: Public History & Cultural Heritage

Institution University of Limerick
Department Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
Study type Taught


The Public History and Cultural Heritage MA programme provides a structured academic approach to the practice of history in the public domain through modern models of online learning. Graduates of this programme attain a globally-recognised postgraduate qualification in a cutting-edge area of historical practice. The programme has been developed to include a combination of conceptual, methodological and practice-based modules, thus broadening the student’s intellectual and scholarly experience. The modules engage with contemporary issues in public history, including controversies, collaborations, and communications, all the time questioning: What does it mean? Why does it matter?. The online delivery provides prospective students employed in the areas of culture, heritage, education, tourism, local history and civic development, among others, with the opportunity to become part of an international public history community. In keeping with its community-building and peer-support ethos, this programme offers continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities to those already working in public history (museums, archives, cultural heritage sites, or freelance), but is also designed to appeal to those seeking to work in this exciting field.
