Environment, Culture and Society
This is a degree aimed at those who want to engage critically, practically and creatively with global and local environmental problems through different disciplinary lenses. The course brings together insights from social, cultural and environmental science theories and applies these to contemporary environmental issues, debates and controversies. Students are encouraged to take a range of social and natural science modules offered by the Department of Sociology, Law and Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) and will acquire the skills to navigate, interpret and combine these different ways of knowing the environment. There is a strong emphasis on participatory and engaged research, making insights count in engagement with communities and policy-makers.
