In year one you will receive an advanced overview of both human and physical geography and will develop a wide range of geographical and scientific skills. The following years are organised around specialist units from human and/or physical geography. Physical geography units reflect our staff's research skills in glaciology, hydrology and environmental change. Human geography units provide in-depth study of cultural, economic and social geography, emphasising the importance of theory and methods for analysing contemporary geographical problems and policies. Topics range from economic development and global politics to inequalities of health and contemporary social theory. In addition to specialist units, you will take core elements that develop your analytical skills, including the use of specialised computer software, statistics and data collection in the field.
