Join the next generation of geographers preparing to address the challenges facing the modern world. Expand your theoretical knowledge and develop practical field, research and work-related skills in a course that extends beyond the traditional foundations of Geography to address contemporary social and environmental issues.

Drawing on expertise from the University’s schools of Law, Sociology, and Anthropology and Conservation, this course equips you with the skills required for a career in business, government agencies, NGOs, education and development.
