Introduction

The Culture, Environment and Social Change BA will enable you to explore the most important issues in the world today. Ranging from climate change and resource depletion to mass migration and social inequality, you’ll examine critical issues from a variety of disciplinary perspectives to make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world at a variety of different scales.

In this course, you’ll examine how the historical forces of colonialism and capitalism have laid the foundations for contemporary environmental and social crises, learn how to critically analyse the ways humans understand, experience and impact the natural world and gain a clear understanding of how cultural media and institutions have shaped the evolving relationships between societies and environments in the Global North and South.

The core modules have been designed to introduce you to key ideas and theories in environmental humanities and social justice. These are combined with a broad range of option modules, enabling you to tailor your degree to your interests. You can develop a specialism in Language and Communication, Law, or Politics. You can also select a range of optional modules from English Literature, Creative Writing, Sociology, and History, allowing you to experience different methodological perspectives on contemporary environmental and social issues.

Ultimately, this course aims to develop environmentally and socially conscious global citizens who want to make a difference in the world. All through the course and upon graduating, you’ll be empowered to advocate for social change and prepared for a career in a wide spectrum of areas, including policymaking, campaigning, education, government, the arts and industry.
