Course content

This programme is intended for students who seek training in the history, theory and practices associated with cultural landscapes.

It provides methodological and conceptual tools essential for contemporary research and affords the opportunity for the in-depth study of a theme that characterises contemporary landscape research and practice.

The programme provides students with a strong historical and methodological framework for studying historic and contemporary cultural landscapes. Through a combination of coursework, fieldwork projects and supervised project/dissertation research, students will acquire both a breadth of historical understanding and rigorous research practices.

It is transdisciplinary in its approach, taking into account histories and approaches drawn primarily from architecture and contemporary art theory and practice, but the programme also engages with other arts-based and social science disciplines, including cultural geography, the history of art, visual and material culture, literature, digital design and media, anthropology and archaeology.
