This year we are sending a record twenty-four graduates out into the world, all of whom impressed us with their insight, creative practice, enthusiasm, and collaborative spirit.
During their year with us - in addition to researching fascinating essays and dissertations - they wrote Horrible Histories sketches, designed escape rooms, facilitated community projects, made podcasts, created online exhibitions, and starred in historical audio dramas.
We are pleased to see many of them putting these myriad skills into practice - this year's graduates have gone on to secure jobs in museums, living history, archives and community engagement, as well as pursue their own projects.
The Public History MA Dissertation Prize was awarded to Tom Willett, for his outstanding thesis "'We wunt be druv": Life, Death and the Lewes Bonfire" which made a significant contribution to the fields of oral history and local history.
