Overview

Geography is dynamic. On this Geography course, you’ll explore how the environment affects society, its economy and culture, and in turn, how we adapt and transform that environment.

Accredited by the Royal Geographical Society, this Geography degree has been designed for students who enjoy the different traditions in geography. It incorporates major elements of physical and human geography, and some geographical information systems (GIS).

Field courses and the opportunity for residential fieldwork ensure a rich experiential degree. Previous fieldwork locations have included Sicily, Athens and Santorini, New York, Hong Kong, Uganda and South Africa.

Our Geography degree emphasises issues that shape people and places in a global society. You’ll investigate critical issues that are challenging the 21st century, from the local to global scale and analyse the relationship between human and non-human environments, and how to sustain their delicate balance.

Our Geography and Environmental courses ranked 6th in the UK, according to the 2020 Guardian League Table and 4th in the UK for teaching quality, Good University Guide 2020, The Times.

Careers workshops and work-based learning are all built into the Geography course. Engaging you in a range of participatory learning environments will encourage you to develop your portfolio of transferable skills, build confidence and become an employable graduate.
