School of Arts, Culture and Environment
The School of Arts, Culture and Environment was created following major restructuring of Edinburgh University in 2002.
The restructuring saw the University's nine Faculties reconstituted as three Colleges, while Departments were reorganised and replaced by twenty-two Schools. The School of Arts, Culture and Environment was one of nine constituent schools of the College of Humanities and Social Science. Unusually, it brought together three subject areas which had hitherto been taught in three separate faculties:
- Architecture - previously a department of the Faculty of Social Sciences
- Fine Art - previously a department of the Faculty of Arts
- Music - previously a Faculty in its own right, but now reconstituted as the Reid School of Music
Following merger between Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh University in 2011, the School of Arts, Culture and Environment ceased to exist. The subject areas that it covered now became part of an enlarged Edinburgh College of Art.
