The MSc Cultural Landscapes poses crucial ethical, theoretical and practical questions about the ways landscapes are used and managed in the contemporary world.
Joining a world-leading university, you'll spend time examining the relationships between people and the landscapes they inhabit. You will hone your research skills through a series of practical, field-based projects in local, regional and internationally renowned rural and urban landscapes including Ian Hamilton Findlay’s acclaimed Garden ‘Little Sparta’.
Throughout the programme, you will benefit from a series of talks and lectures from leading researchers and practitioners working at the cutting-edge of the field. And you will tailor your degree by selecting from one of four available thematic pathways including: Material Culture, Urban Landscapes, Digital Landscapes or Landscape and Representation.
The MSc Cultural Landscapes is a truly interdisciplinary degree. The programme combines approaches from contemporary art theory, cultural geography, architectural history, conservation and landscape architecture all of which ensure our graduates are well placed for careers in public art practice, heritage management, planning departments, conservation policy or for doctoral level research.
