M.Phil. Human Ecology

A brief description of the graduate-level degree program:

College of the Atlantic offers one Masters level degree: the Master of Philosophy in Human Ecology. The M.Phil program provides opportunities for a select group of advanced students to pursue cross-disciplinary scholarship and research in human ecology: the study of the relationships between humans and their natural, cultural, and built environments. The M.Phil. program has two important elements: The first consists of nine courses that serve as the foundation for advanced, independent work by the candidate. These courses are expected to cover a range of topics and yet facilitate the clear development of a theme of study. The second element of the program is the thesis, a work of original scholarship developed in close association with the thesis committee. The thesis should exemplify the multi-disciplinary nature of research encouraged within human ecology and ideally further understanding of specific elements within the discipline.
