Human Geography and Sociology

Human geography has become an increasingly important discipline within the wider field of geography. Studying the complex relationships between human societies and their environments is even more illuminating in the context of sociology. Whilst focusing on this field, we draw on different disciplines to bring human geography to life, covering themes such as global movement, international development, political and social change, diversity and inequality, and the shaping of nation states. 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. Coupled with the international importance placed on human, population and environmental issues, this joint programme is an extremely relevant and rewarding choice of degree course. Being a graduate will 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. As the world faces big questions relating to overpopulation, poverty, climate, migration, biodiversity and energy, this has been declared as the ‘great age of geography’. This is indeed the time and the place to combine human geography and sociology.
