SCQF Level 8 (Year 1 Undergraduate)
This course provides an introduction to the topographical, social and cultural features of Scotland and examines their influence upon each other over time.The diversity of Scotland's resources, the nature of its land and seascapes and the complexity of its settlement patterns are explored and regional variety in material culture and linguistic forms, and the identities which result, are illustrated.Ways in which family, community and work experience are manifested and expressed in a range of cultural forms form a signficant element of the course, and students are given solid grounding in the sources and methods appropriate for the study of these in a strong theoretical context.
