Geography and Geo-Informatics

Geo-Informatics is the application of new technologies to geographical problems, and includes technology-based approaches such as satellite remote sensing, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and environmental modelling. The BSc Geography & Geo-Informatics degree schemes allows you to specialise in these aspects of Geography. You do not need Geography at A level to enter this scheme, but you will be expected to have taken Mathematics A level. Fieldwork is an important part of our teaching on the BSc Geography & Geo-Informatics course, including an overseas field course in level two as well as fieldwork closer to home at all levels. Swansea have 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, student experience and research. Our department is now the largest within the University's College of Science. We take in more than 150 students each year and over 60 postgraduate students are studying for PhD research degrees and taking our MSc course in Environmental Dynamics and MA course in Human Geography. We offer a lively, friendly and thriving environment in which to pursue a Geography degree. We offer numerous activities for work experience and internships and a dedicated programme of activities designed to enhance your employability.
