Geography

Open University in Scotland

Content

You’ll explore how geography makes a difference to how we understand and might respond to global challenges such as poverty, climate change, migration and urbanisation. By studying places, landscapes, and issues located in space and time, you’ll deepen your understanding of the relationships between human and natural environments, and how those relationships are in turn shaped by distinctive patterns of social, cultural, economic and political dynamics. As you combine this knowledge and understanding with the skills that you’ll develop through virtual fieldwork in generating, interpreting, and communicating geographical imagination, you’ll work towards a project to complete your degree.
