This programme offers you the opportunity to acquire advanced knowledge of how different societies are influenced by the environment and manage natural resources and hazards, in relation to issues in human ecology, biodiversity management, sustainable development, environmental change and the practical applications of such knowledge.
As a graduate of this programme, you will have a range of both practical and evaluative skills, and experience of conducting empirical or other applied research. This allows you to pursue work as a researcher and will inform whatever position you take up in the future.
It is expected that such work might be undertaken in conjunction with a range of organisations including national or international environmental bodies, governmental departments and non- governmental organisations.
The following Master's programmes are recognised by the ESRC as having research training status, so successful completion of these courses is sufficient preparation for research in the various fields of social anthropology. Many of our students do, in fact, go on to do MPhil and PhD research. Others use their Master's qualification in employment ranging from research in government departments to teaching to consultancy work overseas.
Postgraduate Diploma students may study the same course content as MA and MSc students on the respective programmes, but diploma programmes run for nine months full-time and are assessed by essays and course participation alone. Diploma students who successfully complete the coursework may, on application, be accepted onto the research and dissertation module which leads to the award of MA or MSc.
