University of Aberdeen
People and the Environment
The programme focuses on areas such as conservation, landscape and access, human-animal relations and indigenous rights, and is designed to furnish students not simply with an informed and nuanced understanding of the issues. More than this, it also examines and questions the underlying assumptions (about the inevitability of human behaviour, about how we perceive and relate to non-humans, about our place within a natural and man-made landscape) that can hold back constructive debate in these areas.
Upper 2nd Class Honours Degree or equivalent; applicants whose 1st language is not English require proof of English language proficiency.
Core courses: Understanding people and environment; reading environmental ethnography; dissertation preparation seminar. Plus a range of electives. Master's students will be expected to carry out a substantial research project for their dissertation (12,000 words).
