Ethnobotany is the study of the interrelationship between people and plants, particularly the way in which plants impact on human culture and practices, and how humans have used and modified plants, and how they represent them in their systems of knowledge. It is fundamentally interdisciplinary: connecting anthropology, botany, natural resource management and environmental history, to mention only the most central of the contributing subjects.
The Kent MSc is an intensive 12 month programme. Students take 6 coursework modules over the first 6 months, and then undertake a project and write a dissertation in the second 6 months.
The Master's programme is recognised by the ESRC as having research training status, so successful completion of this course 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.
