Most of our students take Single Honours BA or BSc Geography degrees. These allow you to choose what aspects of Geography you want to focus on as you move through the 3 years of study. All students study a set course of physical and human geography modules in Year One. BA and BSc Geography students choose from the same set of optional modules in Years Two and Three. Normally, students with more of an interest in Physical Geography and with Science subjects at A level (such as Biology or Computing) choose the BSc scheme, while students with more of an interest in Human Geography and with Arts subjects at A level (such as English, History or languages) choose the BA scheme, but the choice is yours. Other factors that might influence your choice of degree scheme include your eventual career path and your personal preference. Once you start at Swansea you can change between these two schemes up until the end of Year 2. Fieldwork is an important part of our teaching on the BSc Geography course, including an overseas field course in Year Two as well as fieldwork closer to home in all years. Swansea has been successfully training Geography graduates since the 1930s. We are one of the most well established Geography departments in the UK and, with over 30 academic staff, we are amongst the largest. Our well established reputation is noted by our excellent ratings for teaching, the student experience and world-class research. We offer a lively, friendly and rewarding environment in which to pursue a Geography degree. We offer numerous activities for work experience and a dedicated programme of activities designed to enhance your employability.
