MA - Master of Arts
Environmental Studies Humanities / General Studies / Combined Studies
From Greta Thunberg's school strikes and the role of the environment in politics, to the unmissable natural phenomena the planet is currently experiencing, the discipline of environmental humanities has never been more relevant.
This innovative master's programme allows you to approach the natural world through a contemporary - and very human - lens. Using the current climate change crisis as a backdrop, you will draw on themes from history, philosophy, religion, literature, and creative writing to explore the role of nature in human thought and understand the extent of environmental crises, past and present.
You will benefit from studying in our community of researcher-practitioners, which includes those who also work in third sector organisations. We also partner with organisations and groups involved in conservation, politics and campaigning and education, allowing you to develop your knowledge and become a professional able to harness the potential of the humanities more broadly for the transformation of public experience.
This programme will rigorously prepare you for a career in which you will be able to fully engage with environmental concerns across sectors, industries, and functions. You will learn the history and theory of environmental humanities, undertake a placement, and receive training in research skills.
The programme's aim is to produce professionals able to harness the potential of the humanities more broadly for the transformation of public experience, understanding of and commitment to the natural world. Our graduates will therefore be well placed for careers in local or national government, environmental communications, campaigning organisations and environmental charities, education, creative arts, and the media, and the recreational, therapeutic and wellbeing sectors. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
