Human Geography

Human Geography is one of the most dynamic and exciting academic subjects of the present time – indeed a recent report described human geography research in the UK as world-leading. As one human geographer has written “geography is everywhere” - and there is no better subject for understanding the world around us. Human Geography looks at issues of place, space and landscape. It addresses key questions such as: how and why are places different from one another? How are cities changing and what is making them change? How is globalisation having an impact on the everyday places in which we live and work? How do things vary in different places and what causes these variations? What are the factors that shape landscapes and how have these changed over time? Studying human geography will open your eyes to the world around you so that you can understand and interpret why things are as they are – and how they are constantly changing.
