Course Description

This course consists of a six-week full-time work placement or a twelve-week part-time placement in a working context related to the field of environmental anthropology. Partner organisations will be based in northeast Scotland. Possible organisations include the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the Forestry Commission, Scottish Natural Heritage, the John Muir Trust, Aberdeen City Council and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency. Work projects for students will be negotiated with these organisations. Students will meet regularly with a supervisor within the Department of Anthropology to discuss their placement and will write a report, which will form the basis of assessment.

No formal classes are required for the course, but students will have regular meetings with a supervisor in the Department of Anthropology both before and after the work placement. At these meetings a decision will be made on the most appropriate placement for the student and the student will also be given guidance on writing their report.
