Masters degree in Cultural Geography examine the ways in which cultures, beliefs and value systems shape and are shaped by populations and their environments.
Related subjects include Social Geography and Urban Geography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Cultural and Communication Studies or Human Geography.
Courses in this area of Human Geography offer an interdisciplinary approach to investigate the ways in which cultural landscapes are formed, and the human and natural processes which influence them.
Studies are highly diverse, but typically include methodologies in cultural areal differentiation, examining differences in ways of life across geographical areas. This may include an analysis of ideas, attitudes and languages, as well as cultural practices and power structures.
For example, you may wish to analyse power institutions and their impact on issues such as cultural hegemony, assimilation and imperialism. Alternatively, you may examine topics within globalisation, such as how ecotourism has an impact on human and ecological systems.
Careers are wide-ranging, and may include roles in public services such as immigration units, conservation and charity work, or public policy and legislation for government departments and international agencies.
