Landscape is a key theme in cultural and historical geography, providing connections in theory and practice with disciplines throughout the humanities and social sciences. The MA in Landscape and Culture has run successfully since 1996, and has attracted students from a wide range of disciplines and practical backgrounds. The course can be taken full-time (one year) or part-time (two years). The course includes the writing of a dissertation, and a sense of the range of interests of past students can be gained from the list of past dissertation titles. These include studies of literature, gardens, music, work cultures, painting, food and drink, film, travel writing, and advertising, alongside accounts of specific local and regional landscapes ranging from Nottinghamshire through the rest of the British Isles to Europe and beyond.
The School of Geography at Nottingham is well-known nationally and internationally as a principal centre for research and teaching on landscape and culture, and there is a well-established PhD programme in cultural and historical geography with around 15 research students. Approximately half of the graduates from the MA in Landscape and Culture have gone on to funded PhD research at Nottingham or elsewhere, while others find employment in the public, voluntary and private sectors, for example in areas of heritage, conservation and landscape research.
