Our accredited Geography BA(Hons) is at the intersection of the climate crisis, environmental politics and transformative social change. It focuses equally on human geography and environmental geography. You’ll explore a range of live issues including climate change adaptation, protesting inequalities, LGBTQ and feminist activism, building sustainable societies, global development, and the politics of popular culture. Elements of physical geography featured on our BSc programme can also be incorporated to give you a broad foundation in the subject, and you can tailor the course to your career aspirations through module choices. Learning with a course team of active researchers you’ll build on the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom and the lab through field work. Field trip locations include the South Downs, Morocco, Norfolk, and an optional trip to Brazil. The option of a placement year and visiting lecturers from industry will give you a feel for what the working world is like. Alongside this you’ll also develop transferable skills in presentation and teamwork – all helping you to get career-ready. This programme has been accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
