The MLitt in Environmental History is an interdisciplinary postgraduate programme run jointly by the Institute for Environmental History and the Department of Modern History.

Environmental History examines human interaction with the natural world through time, and students will have the opportunity to engage with this intellectually urgent field.

Highlights

  • The programme benefits from the expertise of members of the Institute for Environmental History and the Department of Modern History.
  • Students explore multiple dimensions of this intellectually significant field of study, while firmly rooting this knowledge in a progressively better understanding of core issues within historiography and methodology.
  • Some modules are interdisciplinary and interdepartmental, involving the School of Geography and Geosciences.

Teaching format

Over two semesters, students complete two compulsory modules and one or two optional modules. 

Teaching methods include seminars and fortnightly tutorials. Class sizes range from individual supervision up to 12 students. The modules are assessed principally by coursework.

Students will spend the final three months of the course focusing on researching and writing the final assessment piece for the MLitt, a dissertation of not more than 15,000 words.

Conferences and events

The School of History hosts the Modern History research seminar programme, which presents numerous talks and lectures each month. 

Visit the Institute for Environmental History page to learn more about the work and research being done by environmental historians at St Andrews. 

Careers

Past graduates of this programme have undertaken careers in research and in environmental management in the university sector. Others have attained positions within environmental non-governmental organisations or as sustainable development officers for particular business corporations.

More generally, history postgraduates go on to pursue careers in a range of sectors including journalism, publishing, think tanks, government, law and teaching. 

The Careers Centre offers one-to-one advice to all students on a taught postgraduate course and offers a programme of events to assist students in building their employability skills.
