This four-year degree allows you to specialise in human or physical aspects of geography (or to blend the two) and incorporates a year abroad in your third year. The course allows you to specialise in physical and human geography sub-disciplines, as well as in the application of the latest geospatial technologies (digital geographies) to laboratory investigations and fieldwork in human and physical geography. UK fieldwork (real and virtual) is an integral part of most areas of teaching, and on top of the year abroad there are opportunities for travel to a variety of international fieldwork destinations. Benefit from studying in a vibrant, research active and friendly department, which adopts innovative approaches to learning to help you develop knowledge, skills and understanding in human and/or physical geography. Our Geography courses are ranked 8th in the UK for Student Satisfaction and in the top 20 for graduate prospects (Complete University Guide, 2022). Physical geography modules explore processes that shape environments, focusing on changes in climate and sea-level, water quality, catchment vegetation, slope processes, ocean circulation and natural hazard processes. Human geography options focus on social, economic and cultural challenges in the areas of geopolitics, social mobility, digital poverty, health and sustainability. There is also the opportunity for you to gain work experience in an external organisation.
Please refer to the course website for module details.
You will demonstrate your knowledge through a wide range of innovative and real-world authentic assignments, including field and laboratory reports, vlogs, debates, briefings, consultancy reports and infographics.
