Our accredited Geography BSc(Hons) examines crucial contemporary issues such as the impacts of climate and environmental change, and global sustainability, which are central to the study of geography. Focused on physical and environmental geography, the course also covers some elements of human geography featured on our BA(Hons) to give you a broad foundation in the subject. The course also develops your employability, transferable skills and practical learning through a combination of geographical scientific study, scientific skills, communication skills, IT and quantitative skills, group working abilities, and personal organisation and development. Trips to Greece and Sicily and locally in Sussex provide opportunities for fieldwork; natural attractions include Seven Sisters and the South Downs, along with freshwater rivers and both saline and semi-saline estuaries. You will have the opportunity to undertake a year’s placement allowing you to build experience and develop a network of professional contacts. If you achieve the required standard in year 2, you can choose to progress directly to the third year of the Geography MGeog and study towards a masters-level qualification. This programme is accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
