The emphasis is on human geography, tackling some of humanity’s most pressing problems. As the world changes – through technology, politics, culture or climate – our understanding of it must change too, as must our ways of living prosperously and responsibly within it. This degree focuses on the geographical dimensions of societal change through the study of communities, cultures and their environment. You will study contemporary global challenges at local, national and international levels of analysis. These include themes like globalisation, climate change policy, energy transitions and urbanisation. These topics are part of a varied and flexible degree programme that can be shaped to your own particular interests. During the course you will enhance your knowledge and understanding of key geographical issues. You will develop a range of skills relevant to working in project design and management, geographical information systems, and research. You will also have the chance to undertake field courses in the UK or abroad in, for example, Kenya or Spain. Improve your graduate prospects with an additional year in industry. On this pathway you will spend your third year acquiring valuable work experience in your chosen field before returning to UEA for your final year. You will put what you have learned into practice, transforming theory into reality. You will also gain first-hand knowledge of your chosen field and generate crucial employer contacts to prepare you for a competitive job market.
