At Sheffield, we see geography as a vibrant, vital discipline that can help solve problems and improve people’s lives. So our teaching combines rigorous academic inquiry with practical skills. There are opportunities to do field work in Berlin, California, Greece, Morocco, New York, New Zealand, Uganda and Spain. All costs for compulsory field trips are included in the tuition fee. The four-year MGeogSci focuses on the processes that underpin changes in our environment, from glacial processes to ocean dynamics. It includes an advanced research project, so it’s particulary useful if you want to progress to a PhD and a career in research or consultancy. Geographical concepts and research methods can be applied to all kinds of challenges in politics, culture, economics and social justice. Our graduates work all over the world in lots of different sectors, including business, consultancy, the environmental sector, government, science and sustainability.
