Our Geography course at Bath Spa University will expand your understanding of the relationship between people and places. Geography is about understanding why 'here' differs from 'there'; how people's lives vary in these different places; and how our own lives are dependent on people and places, near and far. The course takes an integrated approach to Geography, helping you understand both the human and physical aspects of the subject. You develop the ability to link environmental processes with social and spatial behaviours which is a defining feature of geographical practice. - Be supported by a friendly team of lecturers, who are excellent teachers and active researchers. Specialise in topics such as river and coastal processes; poverty and development; environmental hazards; sustainability; and much more. Understand today’s pressing global and local issues, from climate change to sustainable development. Take part in a range of day and residential trips (recent residential trips include Barcelona, the Lake District and Northern India).
Year 1 introduces you to the exciting world of Geography, developing your foundational geographical knowledge and skills. You will get a taste of a variety of geographies, and there are plenty of opportunities to do fieldwork. Topics of study may include examining contemporary geographical issues and exploring key issues such as development and sustainability. In Year 2 will start to specialise in your geographical interests, with a greater emphasis placed on research methods. You will learn a wide range of useful methods and techniques, both in the classroom and through fieldwork. There are also many optional modules to choose from. Finally, Year 3 will see you further specialise and develop your skills as an independent scholar by undertaking dissertation research. There are further optional modules to choose from.
