M. Phil in Environmental History
It is now possible to apply for Trinity’s new M.Phil in Environmental History hosted by the School of Histories and Humanities. The programme gives students a firm understanding of the interplay of, and feedbacks between, nature and culture over time. The taught full- or part-time degree has a strong methodological focus, including training in digital humanities technologies, mixed (quantitative-qualitative) methods and innovative assessment design, supplemented by an optional self-financed field trip to Iceland. The purpose of this M.Phil programme is to train students in methods and themes that are directly relevant to the professional workplace at a time when there is an increasing awareness of the need to include the competencies and insights of the humanities in understanding and addressing environmental issues, not least climate change. Training in critical thinking and mixed methods research skills will open up students’ career perspectives in the public sector, media, private consultancies and NGOs, as well as being an excellent entry point for doctoral studies.
