Our Geography BA/BSc programmes are among the most flexible anywhere. So if you are interested in both human and physical geography, you can pick and choose your modules to focus on the human side, the physical side or the interactions between the two. In a rapidly changing world, not only are many of the challenges we face geographical – climate change, migration, globalisation – but they are also interconnected. It’s because our natural and social environments overlap that we take a multidisciplinary approach. Our single honours course can be taken as a BA or BSc degree. All students enjoy the same wide choice of course options and fieldwork opportunities. Why study this course?
- Flexibility: One reason we are among the largest and most popular geography schools in the country is that we treat you as a geographer. This means we give you options to study both ‘human’ and ‘physical’ geography. We understand you may have a mixture of interests, from social to scientific, and we provide the opportunity for you to study them all.
- Transferable skills: Our degree programmes will equip you with the transferable skills essential for future employment. Geography graduates are skilled in working with digital technologies, statistics, mapping packages, GIS and mobile media. Our careers record speaks for itself with 95.2% of our graduates in employment or further study after six months (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education 2016/17). In many cases these are jobs that are addressing global issues - jobs that really matter.
- Fieldwork: Recent fieldwork destinations have included Rotterdam, Berlin, Rennes, Turkey, Switzerland and Tokyo. The costs of travel and accommodation on all compulsory field courses will be covered by the University. Find out more about fieldwork opportunities.
- Research-led teaching: Our world-leading research feeds directly into our programmes, meaning you will learn from academics who are experts in their field.
