Course Summary

This course will provide you with the skills you need to read the landscape, and to unearth clues about the relationship between human beings and the natural environment. Our landscape is a living record of the way humans have interacted with the land; how we’ve exerted our will over it – and how it in turn has shaped our society. Our Master’s course will arm you with the skills you need to read the landscape, as well as knowledge of the practical and theoretical issues involved in the study of the countryside. You’ll study the relationship between human beings and the natural environment from prehistory to the present day. You’ll undergo intensive practical training in Geographical Information Systems, which will prove invaluable in your independent studies. You’ll discover where to seek out historical and archaeological information. Your dissertation will obviously form a large part of the course. It will allow you to select and focus on a particular place of interest or a specific research question. We have a huge range of expertise within our School, which means we can provide supervision for a wide range of topics. And we’re proud to say that a substantial number of our students’ dissertations have gone on to form the basis for published articles. Throughout the course you’ll also discover how an understanding of the historic environment has applications within the heritage industry, conservation agencies, local government and archaeological management, all of which will offer excellent career opportunities following graduation. Or you may wish to undertake further postgraduate study, for which the MA will provide invaluable preparation.
