Course content

The MSc People and Environment is a one year full-time or two years part-time programme in environmental anthropology. The programme draws on cutting edge research by anthropologists at Aberdeen to provide students with an ecological and philosophical education that keeps the people in. An emphasis on coursework, elective components and individual work with supervisors allows for great flexibility and students have ample opportunity to develop the skills they need and to follow their own interests. The programme will be of great interest to anthropology graduates but is also an excellent choice for students coming from other environmental disciplines who are keen to learn more about the human dimensions of environmental relations.
