Study the most pressing issues facing the world today - from the climate crisis and extinction, to 21st century cities. On this course, you can become an authority on the issues you care about most - and that matter to the world around you. You’ll gain a grounding in both physical and human geography - and you can specialise, if you want. You’ll have the flexibility to follow your interests. You could study progressive conversation approaches, like rewilding. You could investigate desertification and resource scarcity. Or you could analyse urban protest movements, like Extinction Rebellion. Your learning will centre on three areas: Environmental issues Fieldwork Geographical research skills You’ll learn directly from expert researchers - and you’ll be closely supported all the way through. You’ll also carry out fieldwork - both in the UK and abroad. You’ll build hands-on skills, and you’ll investigate important issues - from coastal erosion to cultural tourism.
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.
