Course summary

This is an innovative interdisciplinary MA led by world-class environmental humanities scholars.

Overview

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.

In addition, your studies will be enriched by a series of guest lectures, hosted by Bath Spa’s new Research Centre for Environmental Humanities, including presentations by professionals from relevant industries, such as environmental arts, media, writing, and conservation, as well as by academic researchers in the Environmental Humanities.

Your MA in Environmental Humanities will provide a solid basis from which to contribute to the "green" society and economy of the 21st century. It is also a perfect preparation for doctoral research in this burgeoning field, at Bath Spa University or elsewhere.
