Course summary

TEF Silver

Leeds Beckett University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

History and human geography have never been more closely linked. Geographers have started to consider the long-term trends that have shaped the world around us and, at the same time, environmental and urban history have recently emerged as vibrant areas.

Your course will give you the opportunity to explore the connections and conflicts between these fields. You will study cultural, social, political and environmental developments locally, nationally and globally, and you will discover how these changes have formed the environments, landscapes and societies we live in today.

Guided by our expert teaching staff, you will examine the history of relocation and migration, explore the ideas of place, power and identity, and consider the ethical concerns of diverse societies and vibrant cities. You will be able to select option modules that cover both subjects, and your dissertation will allow you to embrace an area of particular interest to you.
