A warming planet, all manner of inequality and the consequences of political instability are big themes in the world today. Our Geography BSc(Hons) covers the core principles and contemporary views of both human and physical geography, plus the opportunity to specialize a little depending on how our modules shape your interests. You’ll have the chance to study a range of subjects including biogeography, earth processes, landscape and fluvial systems, climate science, environment and society, environment and cultural challenges, and migration and geopolitics before specializing in your final year. In the third year of the course you’ll have the opportunity to benefit from a work placement. This could help you to gain relevant real-world experience and give you a head start in your chosen career. In the final year you’ll have the chance to develop and hone your independent research skills as part of your dissertation module. We also firmly believe in ‘learning through doing’ and since fieldwork is an integral part of any geographers training, you’ll find that we’ve embedded field-trips, including residential field courses in Years 1 and 2, into all three of our Geography degrees, so you can fully embrace the fantastic opportunities that learning in the field presents. All our teaching staff are educated to doctoral level in their respective subject areas and have expertise in most areas of geography.
