Human Geography (Sandwich) - Manchester Metropolitan University

Drawing upon our internationally recognised research expertise in economic, social, political and cultural geography, our Human Geography course has been designed to let you understand the causes and potential solutions to some of the biggest challenges the world faces today. We’ll introduce you to theories and approaches to understand the relationship between society and space and help you make sense of geographical processes. From past events to future developments and from local changes to global trends, you’ll build up a wide-ranging understanding of how our society interacts with our environment. Study Human Geography at Manchester Met and you’ll get to grips with qualitative research techniques, not only learning the theories but also putting them into action – both in the city of Manchester and overseas. With a flexible range of units on offer, you can follow specialist pathways through to your final year, in environmental sustainability or Geographical Information Systems. And, if you take the four-year route for this programme, you can spend a year either working on a placement or studying overseas before returning for your final year. **FEATURES AND BENEFITS:** - Manchester Metropolitan was ranked as the UK's greenest university in the 2017 People and Planet University League - The four-year study abroad route gives you the opportunity to study overseas during your third year in North America, Australia or Europe. - Alternatively, the four-year sandwich route allows you to spend your third year on an employment placement enhancing your career opportunities on graduation. - The Department has been awarded Green Hero Status for Excellence in Environmental Education and Practice from the Green Organisation. - Residential fieldwork opportunities in the UK or overseas are available during each year of the degree. - Our laboratories and facilities are state-of-the-art and will give you first-hand experience of a wide range of manual and instrumental lab skills and techniques. - Read our Geography and the Environment student blogs: mmu.ac.uk/geogenvblog
