Geography and International Development with a Foundation Year - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** Combine the study of human geography with international development to learn how to tackle the biggest challenges facing the modern world – poverty and inequality, food security, climate change, conflict, global governance, sustainability and migration. You’ll study geography in depth and apply your knowledge and analysis to issues in international development. The course emphasises academic rigour and technical skills, whilst building your employability. You’ll gain practical skills training, field experience, and IT skills including in Geographical Information Systems (GIS). You will start your degree with a foundation year to help you develop the skills and knowledge you will need to succeed, exploring global challenges, such as migration, HIV/AIDS and population growth, and being supported to learn and study effectively. You will have the chance to get a taste of previously unknown areas of study and you’ll be actively encouraged to develop your own scholarly interests, so when you successfully finish your foundation year, you’ll be perfectly placed to progress to Year 1. The School of International Development is internationally renowned for its research. We work closely with the School of Environmental Sciences, which houses the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and a research group on Science, Society and Sustainability. **Overview** After your foundation year, you will study specialised human and social geography modules such as Geographies of Development, People and Place and Urban Geographies. At the same time, you will be able to select modules dedicated to the development of regions of the world such as Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America, and a range of complementary options from related disciplines including anthropology, politics, economics, environmental studies and media. Fieldwork and field courses are a vital part of the degree. In addition to field-work elements in a number of the taught modules, we have a weekend residential trip in Year 1 and a longer trip in either the UK or overseas. In Year 3, you’ll have the opportunity to gain hands on experience through your dissertation research and/or Development Work Experience module. Although registered on the BA Geography and International Development degree, successful completion of the foundation year allows entry to any of the interdisciplinary undergraduate degree pathways in the School of International Development (DEV), including: BA International Development, BA International Development with Anthropology, BA International Development with Economics, BA International Development with Politics, BA Media and International Development, BA Geography and International Development and BSc International Development and the Environment. Students would also have the option to transfer to the BA Geography in the School of Environmental Sciences, if you choose Environmental Sciences as an optional module. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
