Course summary

Drawing upon our internationally recognised research expertise in economic, social, political and cultural geography, our human geography course has been designed to let you understand the causes and potential solutions to some of the biggest challenges the world faces today. We’ll introduce you to theories and approaches to understand the relationship between society and space and help you make sense of geographical processes. From past events to future developments and from local changes to global trends, you’ll build up a wide-ranging understanding of how our society interacts with our environment. Study human geography at Manchester Met and you’ll get to grips with qualitative research techniques, not only learning the theories but also putting them into action – both in the city of Manchester and overseas. If you take the four-year route for this programme, you can spend a year either working on a placement or studying overseas before returning for your final year. FEATURES AND BENEFITS:

  • Our four-year study abroad route gives you the opportunity to study overseas during your third year, subject to national and international travel restrictions.
  • The four-year placement route offers the chance to spend your third year working on a placement with a relevant employer – gaining the skills and experience that can boost your career prospects. This may be subject to national lockdown restrictions.
  • Fieldwork opportunities in the UK and overseas, subject to national and international travel restrictions.
  • We offer free Carbon Literacy training in person and online to our students, to build their understanding of sustainability and to enhance their employability.
