Overview

Covering physical landscapes, the natural environment and global change, our Geography BSc (Hons) course can show you how our world is changing.
Having taught geography for over 40 years, Coventry is ranked as one of top 10 universities in the UK for ‘Geography and Environmental Studies’ in the Guardian University Guide 2020.

This course focuses on the dynamics of physical landscapes and their links with people and places. We will cover the natural environment – landforms, glaciers, rivers and coasts, together with the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and geosphere. You should seek new insight into global issues, such as environmental change, climate change, sustainability and pollution.

We offer a common first year across the Geography BSc and the Geography BA courses, so students will touch upon topics covered in the Geography BA, namely human geography. Both degrees have mandatory field trips, here in the UK and overseas, embedded within them (which may be subject to additional costs and meeting applicable visa requirements). Past students have studied natural and cultural landscapes in the Lake District and the processes of change in human and physical environments. They have put into practice various physical geography field techniques in Tenerife examining themes, for instance biodiversity, environmental gradients and hazards such as wildfire and volcanic eruptions, and also considered a range of environmental management issues in Morocco.

Career opportunities

Successful geography graduates possess a number of skills that are highly valued by employers, as skills include literate and numerate, experienced in solving complex problems and developing solutions for multiple stakeholders through the collection and analysis of information.

Past students have gone onto a wide variety of roles, such as a GIS officer, data analyst, flood risk analyst, sustainability officer, asset systems manager, planning consultant, environmental energy consultant, public health officer, teacher, meteorologist, insurance assessor or government administrator.

Our faculty’s employability and placements unit EEC Futures, which won the ‘Best Placement Service in the UK’ award at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards in 2015 and 2016, will help you in applying for work experience while you study and employment on graduation. Choosing to undertake a work placement should improve your chances of finding graduate employment, while your GIS skills can help enhance the skills required in one of the most important emerging industries.

Coventry University is committed to preparing you with skills and helping you apply for your future career and giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market.
