Geography

In brief: Our Geography courses are ranked 27th in the UK and top 3 in the North West according to the Guardian University league tables 2018. Several free residential field course opportunities in the UK, European Alps and other international destinations [modest administration fee may apply]. You will be taught by many internationally renowned academic staff. Part-time study option. Work/industrial placement opportunity. International students can apply. Learn about climate change and its effect on people and places; glaciers and the impacts on water resources around the globe; relationships between changing urban environments and quality of life; relationships between fluvial processes, river restoration and management strategies; computer-based mapping and modelling using Geographical Information Systems and Science (GIS) and remote sensing techniques; and critical evaluation of policy and research. Fieldwork is a key element of this course and trips are aligned with the specialist modules, allowing you to develop applied skills and gain practical experience. You may go on day trips to the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales, and cities such as Sheffield and Liverpool. Residential field trips take place in the UK and the European Alps. You will only pay a modest non-refundable deposit for field courses, which are otherwise 100% subsidised by the university. Small group teaching is a key benefit of this course and there are strong links between course content and staff research interests. Study and IT skills are embedded in this programme, as is the use of computing facilities for data handling and Geographical Information Systems and Science (GIS) for environmental mapping and modelling. You can choose to specialise or take modules across the whole spectrum of geography. If you are interested in specialising in human geography then have a look at our BA Geography programme.
