This degree will provide you with a deeper appreciation of the physical environments, landscapes and environmental processes of the earth and the significant role played by human societies, cultures and behaviours. UK and international fieldwork projects will focus your interests, while also broadening your horizons. Specialising in physical geography, you will develop an understanding of the patterns, processes and changes in the earth’s physical environments, as well as the environmental and socio-economic issues facing the world, through theoretical and practical investigation. With a focus on the physical environment, you will also have the opportunity to explore the social, economic, political and cultural processes impacting on the human world. You will gain expertise in geographical information systems (GIS) and remote sensing using the latest industry-standard technology. The programme provides a wealth of transferable skills, enhanced with tailored careers and employability activities across each of the three years, to help you find the career of your choice.
