Content

Geography is the study of the Earth and the link between physical and human landscapes. It explores the inter-relationships between people, place and the environment and how these vary across and between places. Our BA (Hons) Geography considers these links from a humanities and social science perspective, focusing on issues such as land use, planning and development, globalisation, climate change, energy, and tourism, in order to examine human relationships with the environment.

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to understand many aspects of our rapidly changing world, enabling you to tackle real-world problems in a range of organisations and sectors, and with a broad curriculum, created to develop both your specialist and transferable skills.

Geography graduates are among the most employable: you will leave the course with highly transferable skills, such as: demonstrating ideas via reports and oral presentation; data collection and analysis; and the use of specialist mapping and statistical software.
