Study patterns: Public History and Heritage MA (online)

On this page, you will find the study patterns for our MA Public History and Heritage online programme.

These study patterns highlight the modules that you will need study over the next 12 months. Please note that all students are required to re-enrol at the start of every academic year in September and so within your enrolment you can only choose modules for the current academic year.  

The scheduled modules for the remainder of your programme (outlined below) are based on the current plan, however, the order of these may be subject to change. Should any changes be made, we will communicate this to you as soon as possible.      

If you have any queries, please contact the Enrolment team on +44 (0)1332 594000 (option 4) or email UDOLenrolment@derby.ac.uk.

Pace of your study
For students completing the programme at the standard rate of study, the required minimum number of study time is 20 hours per week. 

If you opt to undertake the accelerated study plan whereby you will study two modules in one trimester, we recommend 40 hours of study per week.

Should you decide to study on the accelerated rate you must ensure that you have the capacity to fully engage with your studies and achieve the best grades and final award. You will need to balance approximately 40 hours of study per week alongside your professional and personal life and commitments.

It may be useful to consider studying one module at the standard rate of study before deciding whether to then increase to the accelerated rate of study.
