On this dynamic Geography degree, you’ll explore how the environment affects society, the economy and culture, and in turn, how we adapt and transform that environment. Our Geography degree emphasises issues that shape people and places in a global society. You’ll investigate critical issues that are challenging the 21st century, from the local to global scale. By focusing on current issues and recognising the links between human and physical geography, you’ll gain a range of skills needed to interpret and analyse the relationship between human and non-human environments, and how to sustain their delicate balance. Accredited by the Royal Geographical Society, this Geography course has been designed for students who enjoy the different traditions in geography. It incorporates major elements of physical and human geography, and some geographical information systems (GIS). A variety of experiential learning methods are embedded in the Geography course to ensure you can put theory into practice, including the opportunity to participate in a community-based project. Field courses and the opportunity for residential fieldwork ensure a rich experiential degree. Previous fieldwork locations have included Sicily, Malta, New York, Hong Kong and Uganda (additional costs apply).
