A NEW MA programme in Cultural History is set to begin at the University of Chichester.
Three special introductory taster events are planned prior to the course starting in October for prospective students of all ages to attend.
The history department at the university has joined in collaboration with colleagues from the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, Pallant House Gallery, and the University’s Otter Gallery to teach the MA programme.
The three open evening events are planned on Friday from 5pm until 7pm and on Tuesday, September 3 from 5pm until 7pm.
They will be hosted on the Bishop Otter Campus.
The degree, which can be taken as a one-year full-time or two years’ part-time course, aims to educate around themes of British Cultural history, drawing on the fantastic resources of the local partners.
Dr Hugo Frey, head of the history department, said: ‘We are really thrilled to be able to start this programme and coupled with the introductory sessions I believe it will be a great way to open new dialogue with the students living in Chichester.
‘This is such a cultured city we are sure to have some fantastic work.’
The course starts on Tuesday, October 1 and runs through each semester.
