Course description

Business Management is strongly grounded in the social sciences and provides an understanding of management and organisation that is more academically and critically informed than the more common managerial and functionally-based courses. We have a distinctive teaching and research approach, believing that the most productive way of studying the subject is to take a critical perspective on organisations, along with a thorough application of theory to practices of management and the development of essential analytical skills and knowledge. Our teaching and research moves between a framework of basic practices used in particular functions of management and their critical evaluation. We believe that it is important to think about and debate technical issues, national and international social trends, cultural location and ethical issues. Extensive reading and discussion encourages students to engage critically with management practice. Human Geography is the study of individuals and communities, and of places and landscapes in a spatial context and in terms of cultures, economies, societies and resource bases, both in the present and the past. A rapidly evolving subject, it encompasses a rich diversity of strands. Besides providing an overview of new developments in the subject, the course focuses on a number of distinct themes and intersecting areas: family mobility, higher education and medical geography/social demography; international migration, development, sustainability and cultural economies; South Asian and cross-cultural world literature, postcolonial lifeworlds and literary representations of place and space; and cultures of mobilities and security, particularly through biopolitics, resilience and the empirical context of the aerial. Relationships between people and the worlds they inhabit are dynamic, complex and problematic; the Human Geography course offers the opportunity to explore and understand those relationships.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
There are two options for geography studies: this one is the human and social geography side (there is also an option for physical geography, a more science-based degree). There is a shortage of social science graduates with really good maths skills, and graduates from these disciplines who have them are in demand from modern industry. An ability to combine good data handling skills with good communication and social skills will really help start your career, and that's something a geography degree with a good stats component can really bring to the jobs market. It's also why unemployment rates for the degree are much lower than average, and a lot of geography graduates start their careers in sought-after jobs in the business and finance industry – so if you take this subject, be sure to take your maths and stats modules.

As only a small number of students take courses in this subject area, there isn't much information on what graduates do when they finish, so bear that in mind when you review any stats. Management, finance and business roles are common, but it's a good idea to ask tutors what previous graduates taking specific courses went on to do when you're at an open day.
