Masters in Archives and Records Management / Masters in Records
Management with Digital Preservation or Information Rights by online
distance learning
The need for high quality information management and recordkeeping in
organisations has never been higher, nor has the need for
appropriately educated information professionals. Our programmes focus
on the theory and practice required for a career in archives, records
management, information rights compliance or digital recordkeeping,
giving you the knowledge and expertise you need to improve your
organisation's management of information, records and archives and to
mitigate the risks arising from their mismanagement. Each of our
courses is taught by a recognised expert practitioner and educator,
and our learning materials are continually refreshed to ensure that
they remain current. Student support is central to our approach to
online learning. You will study in a cohort each semester and be in
regular contact with your tutors, other students and CAIS staff
throughout.
A Masters degree comprises 180 credits and takes 2.5-5 years. The
degrees consist of a series of core and optional taught courses (120
credits) and a Masters dissertation (60 credits). Semesters last for
nine (10 credits) or fifteen weeks (20 credits) and there are three
semesters each session (September, January and May). Early exit points
are available.

professional development
CAIS offers a number of postgraduate certificates and all CAIS courses

‘Of the Masters courses available…these are the most diverse and
interesting, and the most flexible.’
‘CAIS has an excellent programme and it was a great experience.’
'From all the chats I had with other UK [Masters] students, I think
you'd be pleased to hear that Dundee comes out extremely well (best in
my humble opinion, but then I'm probably biased), both in terms of
what's covered in the modules, but also in terms of the level of
support and personal attention to students' individual
needs/circumstances.'
'I always felt like everyone was really invested in helping students
succeed. I would certainly come back to Dundee for further training
needs and I often recommend the course to our volunteers!’
