This programme is offered either full and part time basis.
The English landscape has been described as the richest historical record we possess. Society has developed in geographical pockets, as reflected in our attitudes, beliefs, social structures, industries – and our accents.
Our MA will provide you with the skills you need to read the landscape, and to unearth clues about the relationship between human beings and the natural environment.
Our approach to Landscape History is deliberately eclectic – unconstricted by eras or geographical boundaries. You’ll study materials from prehistory to the present day; from henges and hillforts, to historic gardens and wartime pillboxes. You’ll discover long-term trends, and the enduring legacy our landscapes have had on local and regional communities.
Our Master’s course offers intensive and practical preparation for further postgraduate study. However it is also ideal preparation to enter professions requiring knowledge of the historic environment, such as tourism, heritage and conservation work.
