At the MSc Records Management and Digital Preservation from University of Dundee, we teach records management and digital preservation by focusing on the core principles, theory and practice.
Our focus is very much on a mix of the theoretical and the practical. You must be working or volunteering in an appropriate professional environment both prior to and throughout your studies so you can apply what you are learning. As part of this course, you will research and write a dissertation on a topic of your own interest.
You will develop your understanding of records management and digital preservation practice and tradition. This course will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of the management of current and semi-current records, and give you a thorough understanding of how digital records should be managed, preserved and retrieved.
You’ll receive a lot of online content right from the start and benefit from our flexible teaching model that allows students to take semesters off and learn from subject experts.
Our courses are designed to produce graduates capable of progressing in a career within the record management and digital preservation sectors.
