Overview

As a subject that explores the big questions about our planet – questions affecting us all – Geography is fascinating, fulfilling and fun to study. At Worcester, Geography is all about the learning experience, supported by relevant research.

With smaller class sizes, you get hands-on use of our high-tech facilities and equipment, opportunities to develop the specialist skills that employers want, and more time with your lecturers. Fieldwork is also a big part of the course, from week-to-week visits to local field areas, to residential fieldcourses in the UK, Europe, Africa and North America.

Career opportunities

The course will prepare you for a range of interesting and diverse careers, including environmental consultancy, geographical information systems (GIS) management, local government and planning (e.g. town and country planning, regeneration managers, tourism officers, climate change development officers, data managers, community service managers), conservation, working with the wildlife Trust or Civil Service, research and teaching. Alternatively, you may wish to continue to postgraduate study and other professional qualifications.

Geography graduates have a good track record in gaining employment in a wide range of professions and organisations, as a result of the broad range of skills developed through hands-on learning activities centred on the analysis of real world issues and processes.

You’ll have many opportunities to extend your experience and enhance one’s CV by carrying out voluntary work. We have links with several local government (such as local authority planning departments) organisations and other environmental and conservation agencies and can help organise voluntary work (which can feed into Independent Studies projects in the final year of study). Numerous undergraduates have volunteered to assist in the collection of River Science field data in recent years and have gained experience in using our state of the art river monitoring equipment. This has helped some of them gain employment after graduation in the water industry, with environmental consultancies and the Environment Agency.
