Geography - Coventry University

Our Geography course is recognised nationally for the excellence and quality of teaching. We will explore which geographical factors contribute to the distribution of wealth, opportunities and privileges within society, engaging with key global issues including the sustainable provision of food, housing and livelihoods. You will also have opportunity to learn about how diverse communities interact with pressing socio-economic and environmental concerns, such as climate change, poverty, social exclusion, population growth and sustainable living in a competitive global economy. All of our Geography courses have a strong focus on your future employability. They are designed to equip you with core knowledge, skills and expertise within the broad field of Geography, together with a range of analytical abilities and transferrable professional skills to find employment on graduation. Throughout your studies, you will have opportunity to undertake residential fieldwork to apply geographical knowledge to real-world concerns.
