Content

The MSc in Environment, Heritage and Policy is ideal if you’re already working in the heritage sector, or are looking for a career in this field. It offers the perfect balance between the practical and intellectual elements of heritage and policy.

The course explores cultural, natural, tangible and intangible heritage, with a particular focus on environmental history. You’ll develop strong practical skills throughout the course - both in the field and in the classroom - and you’ll carry out an individual research project.

We have strong links with industry, so you’ll benefit from guest speakers who are experts in their field – as well as external partners who offer opportunities for work-based projects.

You’ll also have the opportunity to work with members of staff on a one-to-one basis, and experience the Scottish cultural and natural environments first-hand on a number of field trips designed to enhance class-based teaching.

You can exit after stage 1 with PgCert Environment, Heritage and Policy.

You can exit after stage 2 with PgDip Environment, Heritage and Policy.
