Our flexible Geography degrees allow you to specialise in human geography or physical geography, or to combine elements of both. In addition you can study other social science or humanities subjects.
You will develop creative skills in problem solving, presentation, and communication.
You will also have the opportunity to go on field trips, and to work with partner organisations to help them solve problems that they are currently facing.
Our teaching is based on the research carried out in the department and is focused on three broad themes: creating just communities and places, shaping environmental futures, and geospatial and digital methods.
You will cover specialisms within these themes including:
health and well being
geopolitics and power
tourism and globalisation
policing and security
hazards and risk
Laboratories, field equipment, and specialist software like GIS (Geographic Information Systems) will support your learning.
The size of our Geography department means that we can get to know you personally, and offer a friendly and supportive learning experience. You can contact any member of staff to ask for help.
You’ll also study one Spanish module per semester in each year, either as a beginner or at intensive level if you have previously studied the language at Higher/A-Level.
