This combined honours course will appeal to students who are looking to focus on extending their geographical knowledge and understanding of how social and physical processes affect our rapidly changing planet, but also study economics at one of the UK’s leading Schools of Business and Economics. 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. Alongside the geography component, students spend one third of their time studying economics. Skills acquisition and assessment are increasingly important for employment prospects and these are given prominence throughout the course.
