This MPhil offers an 11-month programme of advanced study and research into the challenges to the contemporary world represented by the idea of the Anthropocene. The course is intended for students with a good first degree in geography or a range of related disciplines. The course consists of lectures, seminars, methods practicals, a residential dissertation school and a research dissertation. The residential school consists of an intense few days of individual and group learning, focused on developing the dissertation proposal, poster and oral presentations. A 15,000-word dissertation requires students to identify, design and independently execute a small, empirically-grounded research study related to the course. Students will be supervised through the process from initial question identification through to the design and execution of research.
