Geography and International Development with Overseas Placement

**About This Course** Combine the study of human geography with international development. Learn how to tackle the biggest challenges facing the modern world – poverty and inequality, food security, climate change, conflict, global governance, sustainability and migration. 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). Our School of International Development is internationally renowned for its research. We’re home to the Water Security Research Centre and have important research groups in the areas of Global Environmental Justice, Lifecourse and Migration, and Gender, among others. 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. In your third year, you’ll spend two to six months gaining work experience abroad. For many students, this experience is the highlight of their time at university. **Overview** On this course you study specialised human and social geography modules such as Geographies of Development, People and Place and Urban Geographies. At the same time, you select modules dedicated to the development of regions of the world such as Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America. You also choose 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 several taught modules, we have a weekend residential trip in the first year. There is also a compulsory field trip module in the second year, either in the UK or overseas. In your third year, you have the opportunity to gain hands on experience through your dissertation research and/or Development Work Placement module. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
