Welcome to the Centre for Environment, Heritage and Policy (CEHP) website. We were originally established in 1999 as the Centre for Environmental History and Policy and have always been strongly inter-disciplinary in outlook and research, seeking to combine the best research in the Humanities and the Sciences to further advance our knowledge and understanding of the environment. By learning from the past we can inform future policy decisions.
In 2014 the Centre incorporated Heritage into its title to reflect new directions in research and teaching.
The Centre remains fundamentally interdisciplinary in both concept and practice. Its research involves input from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, including History, Heritage, Politics, the Environmental Sciences, Sociology and Law. Much of this research directly feeds back into our practice-led undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Environmental history modules can now be studied during all four years of an undergraduate BA degree, and in 2013 a new BA programme in Heritage and Conservation in partnership with Forth Valley College was introduced. We also offer two popular and successful Masters programmes: MSc in Environment, Heritage and Policy and an MRes in Historical Research (Environmental History). The Centre is also currently home to eleven students studying for the degree of PhD.
