This is for you if... you are mostly interested in people and the places they inhabit and you want to concentrate on human geography while retaining some physical geography options.
For further details, see the full programme summary on our website by clicking on the ‘view course details’ link towards the top of this page. From there you can access specific module information on the ‘Study with us’ pages.
You will be taught through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, seminars, practicals and fieldwork. All lecture material is available online through our virtual learning environment Blackboard. Contact time typically averages about 10-11 hours per week. Residential field trips are run by academic staff throughout the degree and provide extended periods of small group teaching in field contexts.
Your work will be assessed through a mixture of essays, scientific reports, learning diaries, oral and poster presentations, mock journal articles and of course your final year individual dissertation project. Coursework is mainly undertaken on an individual basis. However, a number of modules (especially field-based modules) involve assessed group project work.
