To take into account

· What are the objectives of this course?

Core modules, taught by world-leading specialists, offer intensive introductions to new disciplinary perspectives, through critical focus on key concepts such as ‘the Anthropocene’, the idea that Earth has now entered a new geological era, indelibly shaped by human activities. A wide choice of optional modules enables you to learn new approaches while also consolidating existing expertise in subjects such as geography, literary studies, philosophy, ethics, religious studies, environmental studies, or conservation. This is a transformative course which is very much yours to mould to your own needs, incorporating multi-disciplinary research methods training that will enable you to proceed to doctoral studies in either humanities or social sciences, should you wish to do so. In addition, there are electives in creative fields, such as film-making and creative writing, and your final project may be either an assessed creative project or a written dissertation.

· Requirements

The course is potentially suitable for graduates of any discipline. Exceptional candidates without a degree but with relevant professional or creative practice experience are also welcome to apply.
