Human Geography - Swansea University

From understanding how landscapes are shaped, to how populations move and interact, to the impact climate change has on us, the study of geography has never been more relevant. If your interest lies especially in human geography, this scheme is an excellent choice; if you have a more general interest in geography, you may prefer our BA or BSc in Geography schemes. All will equip you with highly desirable practical, numerical and computational skills for a wide range of careers. These include regional planning, environmental management, local authority work, financial planning, computing or business and retail management. Our strong relationships with industry enable us to provide great work experience opportunities to enhance your employability. Swansea University is Welsh University of the Year and runner up for University of the Year (Times & Sunday Times University Guide 2019). Our students rank us consistently highly in the National Student Survey (95% in 2018) and we are ideally placed to offer exceptional fieldwork opportunities. Just a short drive from the UK's first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Gower Peninsula, you will have easy access to the Brecon Beacons, rural west Wales and the urban and industrial landscapes of South Wales. You'll also have an opportunity to carry out fieldwork overseas in Berlin, New York or Vancouver. Through this degree, you will explore topical issues including the processes that shape the global economy, mobility and migration, creative geographies and political geography. This degree is also offered as a four-year course, with a year in industry (L987). "I loved my degree. I was always fascinated in the wonders of the World and what made it tick. Geography helps you look at the World with an analytical eye. It forces you to weigh up evidence and come to conclusions and question the origin of things. Journalism is exactly the same." - Melanie Bromley, BA (Hons) Geography, West Coast bureau chief of American Celebrity Magazine US Weekly **We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University.
