Human Geography

This fascinating, interdisciplinary degree in human geography is concerned with human activities and how the people of the world interact with the environment via their communities and cultures. It explores how culture relates to space and to place and will help you appreciate the multiple connections between human culture and the physical landscape in which it is located. Studying human geography will give you a deep understanding of the processes that shape our social and cultural environments and you can examine phenomena as diverse as globalisation, food security, tourism, urban change, international development, and population change, among others. The wide scope of human geography means that it is truly interdisciplinary, so as well as geography, you can study development and environment studies, anthropology, sociology and geographic information science. This programme is ideal if you want to study human geography at undergraduate level for personal or professional reasons and want a flexible evening study course that allows you to explore and deepen your interests, without putting your life on hold. We offer a wide choice of modules that respond to the demands of today's workplace and are linked to the cutting-edge research interests of our staff. You also complete a piece of research or a literature review in an area of special interest to you. This programme gives you the opportunity to study with internationally recognised experts who are defining the field with their groundbreaking research. Ours is a lively, stimulating environment in which to study and research. You will also benefit from our mix of classroom and field-based teaching, including a number of fieldwork opportunities that bring together students to build social and professional networks and develop important skills in data collection and analysis. You will develop the social and technical skills you need for both academic research and the modern workplace.
