The Centre for Environmental Humanities leads two exciting programmes taught here in Bristol.
Our flagship programme is the interdisciplinary MA Environmental Humanities, welcoming graduates seeking to explore how culture can help us navigate ecological crisis. Our Environmental Humanities Summer School welcomes undergraduate students who are keen to explore the relationships between people and the natural world that matter now more than ever.
This interdisciplinary MA allows you to study how human cultures and societies have related to the environment, and to explore how culture can help us respond to ecological crises.
Working with experts from the Centre for Environmental Humanities, you’ll explore topics ranging from the history of local urban conservation initiatives to contemporary environmental art in South America in seminar discussions and in your own reading.
The teaching on the programme is underpinned by cutting-edge research, and encourages students to explore collaborations with external partners as they develop their dissertation projects.

This credit-bearing summer school explores our relationships with the wild world, from the urban to the planetary, here in Bristol, our city of nature.
Working with experts from the Centre for Environmental Humanities, the course explores how the humanities can build a sense of hopefulness in the face of environmental crisis, and demonstrates why the stories we tell about our wild world matter as we come to term with a radically transformed planet.
