You can also study specific literature which has been influenced by our multicultural ancestory across the world. You see the connectivity of languages from one location to the other and you join up the dots of how we use the languages we do.

This can suit graduates from a wide range of disciplines such as international languages, literature, history, English, Anthropology, and many other disciplines.

Your programme of study

You study with leading anthropologists to understand a range of human-environment relations in contemporary environmental issues. The issues and challenges in the environment make daily news reading across the globe, yet there is a tension between environmental concerns and economic benefit, human rights, landscape value, the rights of species to survive and management of natural resources. This is a very current discipline which will only grow in relevance to the environmental issues of the 20th century and this is where you can understand the issues that affect our life on the planet, in communities and how we utilise resources extra to the environment.

Human beings now live in what an increasing number of environmental scientists call the Anthropocene – a stage in the Earth’s geological and climate development that is dominated by the activities of humankind. Whether in the realm of conservation, biodiversity, evolution or climatology, no effective study of environmental issues can proceed without an understanding of human behaviour on both the large and the small scale.

You may be interested in working for conservation and activism organisations to promote understanding of the environment and threats to it, you may want to work in nature conservation or human centred environmental consultancy work to improve quality of life or change issues before they affect people and the environment.

Your programme of study

In recent years Archaeology has become very well recognised on the television with Time Team and programmes about Orkney, Pompeii, hidden cities in Italy and many more. As a discipline it pieces together our hidden and sometimes lost past, helps us understand history, migration, our ancestry and it also helps us to understand just how sophisticated many previous civilisations were and the constant struggle for survival and cultural creation. There are a great many famous international sites which are often world heritage status which bring our past to tourists but the real interest lies in finding items and piecing together settlements, harbours, and how people lived on actual sites. We can then take all of this knowledge to help us understand how far reaching ancient civilisations were. Archaeology is a fascinating subject area and there are a wealth of very important sites within this region of Scotland to really enjoy whilst you are studying.

You are equipped with research skills to investigate the material culture and heritage of the far northern hemisphere, a region that includes Scotland, the North Atlantic, Scandinavia and Baltic Europe, northern Russia and the circumpolar region through Siberia, the North Pacific and high-latitude North America.

Your programme of study

This programme focuses on the issues surrounding gender based violence and human rights and principles of human rights. This discipline and subject area has a wide international reach in terms of how society and central government tackle the different levels of crimes against women and men in different countries and regions of the world looking at the very basic rights of people, expectations and challenges in some societies to top level and bringing in a range of other disciplines to analyse issues.  There are a wide range of career options within this subject area which range from international development and diplomacy to security, peace-building, charitable work to improve conditions in communities, women's and men's rights, international justice, policy and law making and so on.

In this programme the focus will be on ways we think about, understand and respond to violence. How do we know what counts as violence or a violent act?Why does legislation against violence so often transpire as inadequate, perhaps especially in the case of gendered and sexual violence? As the links between sex, gender and violence appear intimate and often lethal, a central but not exclusive focus of the programme will be on theories and practices of sex/gender. You are taught by experts in the School of Sociology.

You may become so knowledgeable that you are able to offer advice, opinion, outreach, security or economic development for specific regions or you may be able to promote peace upon what you experience at workshops, talks and briefings and at government agencies.

The programme allows you to engage with a range of conflicts and peace process in Northern Ireland, Lebanon and Cyprus to fully appreciate the types of conflicts in our recent past, their commonalities and methods of ensuring peace.
