Admittedly as an 'oblique' approach - or double-check for the latest
news regarding possible extension of a course to include 'modern'
cartography - have you contacted those institutions listed under
'College and university level courses in the history of cartography' on
Perhaps your bringing attention to these institutions the lack of a
chronological 'continuum' might bring forth the incentive to provide you
with an entry or two (being quite optimistic!); or maybe everything is
'pure' GIS nowadays?

Subject: Courses in Cartography
I am currently compiling a new edition of the booklet 'Careers in
Cartography' on behalf of the British Cartographic Society, for
in printed form and on the web.
In researching, I have not yet found a single sub-degree or degree
cartography left in the UK. As of this morning, the last course I had
hope was still running (at Glasgow Metropolitan College, in topographic
science) was confirmed as 'no longer available'.
Does anyone know of any courses, at whatever level, which have a
cartographic content running in the UK? If so, I would be very grateful
hear of them.
Please reply to [log in to unmask], if not to the list.
