Course summary

What is special about this course?

The sea has often acted as a highway for people living along adjacent coasts and on islands; such communities have frequently experienced closer ties with each other than with places further inland. The MLitt Coastal and Maritime Societies and Cultures explores these environments from an interdisciplinary perspective.

This course is based on the internationally significant and world-class research of the staff involved and is led by the university’s Centre for History, in collaboration with our Archaeology Institute and Institute for Northern Studies. MLitt students will study two modules in history, archaeology and northern studies, and then complete a dissertation.

This programme will be of interest to those wishing to develop transferable skills with respect to coastal and maritime themes, and to all who wish to pursue further arts and humanities-based research in these areas.

Taught from the Highlands and Islands, the MLitt Coastal and Maritime Societies and Cultures is available to study from anywhere in the world.

"This masters degree will forever change the way you look at the places where salt water meets the shore." Dr Julie Brown (Professor in English Literature, Clatsop Community College, Oregon, USA).
