The BA in Local Studies (Arts) and the BA in Community Studies (Social Sciences) (MH803) are specifically designed for Adult Students who are interested in pursuing a Part-Time Evening degree. These flexible degrees have been developed for people who are busy with work, family and daily life. If you are interested in History, Politics, the Environment, Development, Adult Education, Society and Culture and you have two evenings a week free then these wide ranging degrees may appeal to you.
If you are curious about how people interacted with their environment in the past and how this impacted on their culture and identity in ways that are still felt today, then the BA Local Studies should be of interest to you.
On the other hand, if you would like a deeper understanding of the world around us and consider participation and critical engagement with the issues that face humanity over the coming century such as Social Justice, Democracy and Sustainability as providing a possibility to influence the present and the future then Community Studies will be more to your liking.
Students from both streams will have the opportunity to learn together through our Common Modules where history, geography, adult education, sociology, anthropology bring their unique disciplinary insights to bear on culture, society, landscape, politics, etc.
