Course content

The MA in Environmental Humanities at Warwick will introduce you to major debates around climate change, the Anthropocene, energy, sustainability, ecological futures and environmental justice. Drawing on a combination of seminars, research projects and fieldwork, you will deepen your critical understanding of key ecological concepts and methods, while developing your competence in analysing the implications and developments of the global environmental crisis and ongoing climate emergency. As important, you will be given the opportunity to think creatively about ways of connecting theory and practice.

Considering your position as a scholar and environmentally attuned global citizen, this MA will immerse you in the study of cultural responses to ecological questions from across the globe. You will take a core module in the history, theory and methodology of Environmental Humanities, choose from a range of modules that address various perspectives on climate change, environment, sustainability and ecology, and undertake fieldwork or write a dissertation on an (approved) topic of your choice with a specialised supervisor.
