Geography and Natural Hazards

You can travel the world studying natural hazards on this rewarding course, and learn how to support communities when they need it most. Having taught Geography for over 40 years, Coventry is ranked as one of the 15 best universities in the UK for ‘Geography and Environmental Studies’ in the Guardian University Guide 2018. This course applies geographical knowledge to the study of natural hazards, such as volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, wildfires, tropical cyclones and associated flood events. You will gain an in-depth understanding of the processes responsible for these hazards, which affect millions of people each year. You will learn the key principles of geology, geomorphology, hydrology and climatology and how to map, analyse and potentially predict natural hazards, so that you can help communities prepare for and respond to their impact. In the first year, students will touch upon topics covered in our other two Geography degrees (BA and BSc), while also taking a bespoke module from the Disaster Management programme. All of our Geography degrees encompass significant fieldwork, both here in the UK and overseas, with recent trips visiting locations such as Gambia, Mallorca, Morocco and Tenerife.
