**About This Course** How do we respond effectively to climate change? How do we manage our dwindling resources? How do we deal with population growth in cities and the challenges of more sustainable lifestyles? Learn to tackle today’s biggest global challenges, including natural hazards, climate change, resource management, health, migration and poverty. This degree is for you if have ambitions to address the adverse effects of human challenges such as inequality, and environmental challenges such as climate change, by learning more about the interaction of society and the environment. It’s also ideal if you’re excited about taking part in field work, seminars and team projects with other students. **Overview** Our BA Geography degree focuses on the human impact of a changing world. As the world develops – whether through technology, politics, culture or climate – our understanding of it must change too, as well as our ways of living within it. You will explore some of humanity’s most pressing problems, such as energy, food and water provision, alongside biodiversity and sustainability. Throughout this course you will gain the skills and knowledge to understand and investigate these challenges, with an emphasis on the geographical dimensions of societal change through the study of communities, cultures and their environment. You will develop a broad understanding of geographical concepts and issues, as well as how to formulate research questions, collect and interpret data, present results, and develop practical transferable skills. You’ll also take part in field work, and have the chance to work on group projects. During your first year you will gain a solid understanding of the challenges facing the natural environment and human society. As the course progresses, you will have the opportunity to develop valuable practical experience through fieldwork, and to acquire specialist theoretical knowledge in such areas as biodiversity conservation and human society, climate change or environmental politics.
