Geography

Our BA Geography programme will provide you with a broad understanding of the geographical aspects of human society and the physical environment, with the opportunity to specialise through module choices. Following a first year that provides a good foundation in human and physical geography, plus key skills, the second and final years offer you the opportunity to shape your degree to match your developing interests with an emphasis on human geography. You’ll choose from a range of optional modules which draw upon our research strengths, including historical geography, rural geography, nature-culture relations, cultural and political geography, and climate and society. You will also have the opportunity to undertake human geography research methods, participate in a human geography field trip, and carry out a human geography dissertation. Through field work and other forms of experiential learning, the programme aims to promote your curiosity about social, cultural and natural environments and to enable you to develop a range of skills specific to the geographer as well as a series of cognitive, generic and transferable skills. The programme is available as a four-year degree with the third year spent studying at a partner university abroad.
