It is with these thoughts in mind that we turn attention to a proposed new degree. While the provision of history education in Caerleon has long been established, and before that, archaeological work of global significance (no exaggeration) was conducted at the campus, we are now looking at developing a brand new degree in Heritage, Archaeology and Historical Studies. Looking to build on the respected historical research already maintained in Caerleon, we now want to expand and develop the position of heritage and archaeology in our teaching, reflecting the growing significance for these areas, in national strategies for Wales.
However, there is no point in developing something in isolation, and no degree will ever run without people to participate in it. So, today I’m asking you to follow the link below and get involved. I want you to tell us whether or not this degree is something that you would be interested in, or something you would have been interested in had you had the opportunity to engage with it in the past. I want you to tell me what you would want to get out of this degree, what would make it a degree that you would choose above others, and throw yourself into.
This is important, whatever your viewpoint, this degree will not happen without your help and input. So please do take the time to fill in the few questions asked, and let anyone you know who has an interest in these areas to get in touch as well. Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated, and please feel free to get in touch through other means if you have any questions.
Please find the questionnaire here.
(Finally, I've noticed a lot of comments on the questionnaire response form, which is brilliant, that sort of detail is exactly what we want. However, do feel free to post comments here, as well as on the form - only I can't respond to comments on the survey but I can do here - if you want to discuss elements of the proposal that is.)
