This joint honours course allows students to extend their geographical knowledge and understanding of how social and physical processes affect our rapidly changing planet while also developing a theoretical and practical understanding of sports sciences in the UK’s leading School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences. Students spend equal amounts of time studying each subject in each year and there is the opportunity to explore relationships between Geography and Sport Science in an optional final year dissertation. The Geography modules span human and physical geography in first year ensuring students have a sound understanding of how social and physical processes vary within the context of places and regions. In second and final years students can specialise in one or the other if they wish, or continue to maintain a balance between the two. What makes Geography at Loughborough distinctive is our world-renowned expertise in four areas of geography, each of which is directly reflected in the structure and content of our courses. In human geography we focus on Globalization and on Geographies of Social and Political Differences. In physical geography the emphasis is on Earth Surface Processes and Landforms and on Environmental Systems and Resource Management. In Sport Science the main themes include teaching and coaching, sport pedagogies and sport physiology and psychology and modules are available to develop students’ interest progressively across all three years of study. Practical skills are developed in teaching and coaching which students study the knowledge, skills and understanding underpinning selected sports.
