About

The Heritage MA at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David offers students an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of heritage from the perspective of different disciplines, including archaeology and history.

Overview

The Heritage programme from The University of Wales Trinity Saint David enables students to gain critical acumen in exploring the meanings of heritage as a concept and how such concepts are applied in the UK and on a worldwide basis, thus providing valuable insights and an understanding of a sector that is gaining increased significance in today’s world.

Heritage, as understood here, is a concern for the past, imagined and constructed in (and for) the present, but set within a wider appreciation for the future. The past as Heritage might include the tangible surroundings of landscape, art, building and written traces, alongside the more intangible aspects of heritage such as a sense of place, cultural space and resonance, or a locus of ritual, festivals and social memory.

Why choose this course?

  • Hands-on approach and innovative immersive teaching in small groups and one-to-one tutorials

  • Flexibility in learning: the MA is available both on-campus and as a distance learning course. You can choose to study from the comfort of your own home using our VLE (virtual learning environment) and the course content and reading material we provide or in a more traditional classroom environment (also supported by VLE).
