Human Geography - University of Suffolk

The world faces big questions relating to overpopulation, poverty, climate, migration, biodiversity and energy. Our era has been described as the ‘great age of geography’. This is the time, and this is the place, to study human geography. We draw on different disciplines to bring the subject to life, covering themes such as global movement, international development, political and social change, diversity and inequality, the shaping of nation states, and critical data collection and analysis. We equip you with a unique set of generalist and specialist skills that are relevant to a broad range of careers and include GIS and mapping, as well as quantitative, qualitative and participatory research skills. Our department has an excellent reputation for developing highly skilled graduates. Combined with the international importance placed on human, population and environmental issues, this makes our course a very smart choice of degree programme. Graduates open the door to a range of potential career options, including: international aid and development; environmental, educational and care work; travel, tourism and property; the civil service; town planning and surveying; and economic development. Human geography has become an increasingly important discipline within the wider field of geography. In growing demand by employers, there has never been a better time to study the complex relationships between human societies and environments.
