Course summary

Geographers at Chester are as likely to be analysing earth surface materials or studying cultural interpretations of landscape, as to be using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to map the carbon footprint of a rural community. This ensures that you will have the opportunity to develop the skills required by employers. Our distinct and contemporary course is accredited by the Royal Geographical Society and focuses on the pressing environmental issues facing today's societies. The flexibility of the course allows specialism in a range of human and physical geography sub-disciplines, or to study a balanced mixture. Opportunities for overseas fieldwork will provide you with a greater understanding of places, whilst specialist training in GIS, laboratory analytical and social survey methods will facilitate enquiry into environmental processes, spatial patterns and societal issues. On graduation, you will have a wide range of employment-related skills and knowledge, having had the opportunity to gain invaluable work experience in a full-time placement.
