Course summary

Geography is dynamic. On this Geography course, you'll explore how the environment affects society, its economy and culture, and in turn, how we adapt and transform that environment. Accredited by the Royal Geographical Society, this Geography degree 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).  Field courses and the opportunity for residential fieldwork ensure a rich experiential degree. Previous fieldwork locations have included Sicily, Athens and Santorini, New York, Hong Kong, Uganda and South Africa. 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 and analyse the relationship between human and non-human environments, and how to sustain their delicate balance.  USW’s Geography degrees are based on our Glyntaff Campus. Glyntaff is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views.
