Overview

BA(Hons) Geography and Planning helps you explore the wide-ranging influences that affect environment, place and society.

The course provides a blend of geography and planning, although the former dominates year one and greater emphasis is given to planning over the remaining years.

Develop an understanding of how planners can tackle global issues such as responding to the effects of climate change, to local issues like creating thriving neighbourhoods.

Learn from case studies, inspiring guest lecturers and innovative coursework briefs. Explore international geographic regions balancing urbanisation with environmental challenges.

Gain experience and develop problem-solving skills on projects in our well-equipped studios. Some of these will involve working with real-life problems, communities or leading practitioners in multidisciplinary contexts.

Research and assess locations on day trips and residential field trips. Build your understanding of the role that geographers and planners can make in society at regular presentations from visiting professionals.

Career opportunities

Many of our students go on to pursue a career in planning.

Planners work for a range of employers. Some go into careers in the private sector for consultancies. Others choose the public sector, advising government or working for agencies providing specialist environmental advice.

Graduates keen to develop a career in planning can pursue chartered membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) by following a combination of further study and gaining experience in the sector.
