Human Geography

The BA Human Geography degree scheme is aimed at students who know their interests lie in human geography. Students take human geography modules at Level One. At Levels Two and Three, students study compulsory modules (research methods, approaches to geography, field course, dissertation) that focus on human geography, and optional modules are selected from those covering human geography. Fieldwork is an important part of our teaching on the BA Human Geography course, including an overseas field course in level two as well as fieldwork closer to home at all levels. 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, student experience and research. Our department is now the largest within the University's College of Science. We typically accept upwards of 150 students each year and over 60 postgraduate students study for PhD research degrees or on our MSc or MA courses. 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.
