Geography at University of East Anglia UEA - UCAS

Course summary

Overview Our world is always changing – now more than ever; our BA Geography degree focuses on the human impact of this changing world: how we understand it and live within it. At UEA you learn from world-leading researchers, take field trips to Devon, the Lake District and Spain, develop specialist analysis skills, master geographical information systems software, work with real-world experts and organisations, and most importantly graduate with the skills to make a difference. With lots of flexibility in module choice, our students explore some of humanity’s most pressing problems, from climate change to biodiversity loss; from urbanisation to influencing public policy. Graduate with highly valued transferable skills, from critical thinking, data analysis, fieldwork and spatial visualisation to writing policy briefs and real-world application of social theories of change. Your ability to work across the social, human and physical sciences is in demand across private and public sector graduate jobs where you'll provide real world solutions to today’s challenges. Real-world learning and impacts are at the heart of our BA Geography degree. In classrooms, on field courses, and in meetings with real-world companies you'll develop a broad understanding of geographical issues, theories and ways to apply them. In Year 1 you'll learn about the most pressing geographical, environmental and sustainability problems; in Years 2 and 3 you'll choose your own degree focus, with specialisms including environment, energy and society; political and economic geography; and cultural and historical geography.
