Environment, Culture and Communication
This course is concerned with the relationships we hold with our 'wild' environments, and how these evolved. Students develop a knowledge of environmental debates from both cultural and scientific perspectives, and learn to communicate environmental issues using a variety of tools and strategies.

For applicants whose 1st language is not English, the University sets a minimum English language proficiency level, being IELTS overall 6.5 score (no sub-test less than 6.0), or equivalent scores in another recognised qualification.
Core modules: reading the environment (old and new world romanticisms); environmental communication; writing the environment (modern and contemporary nature writing) environmental politics and society; options; climate change (impacts on ecology); environment, technology and society; environmental ethics and behavioural change; environmental history; folklore and the cultural history of animals; south-west Scotland: image and identity.
The final summative assessment for the course is a 12,000-15,000 word dissertation.
