Course summary

Geography at Oxford Brookes is taught around three areas in which staff have active research experience:

  • Human Origins and Landscapes through Time
  • Social and Cultural Change
  • Environment and Conservation Management.
You will learn how these issues affect everyday lives, be encouraged to discuss them critically, and think about alternative ways of solving problems associated with them. You will understand and engage with contemporary world issues and the connections between culture, nature and landscape. Emphasis is placed on the relationship between society and its environment, and you can specialise in either physical or human-Geography, or a combination of the two. Core compulsory modules are complemented by choices at each stage of your degree. You’ll be able to select from optional modules in your first year, with a greater range on offer in your second and third years.

Course details

Modules

The course is organised around three areas: • human origins and landscapes • social and cultural change • environment and conservation management. Year 1 core modules include two introductory modules to human geography and environmental geography. In Years 2 and 3, you specialise in the areas of geography that interest you most. The Year 2 compulsory Geographical Enquiry and Field Research module emphasises the importance of fieldwork as part of your training. It is undertaken as part of a week-long residential course that gives you the opportunity to design and carry out your own research. Previous locations have included the Arabian Gulf and Mediterranean Europe.
