What makes Geography at Loughborough distinctive is our world-renowned expertise in four areas of geography, each of which is directly reflected in the structure and content of our courses. Physical geographers at Loughborough are renowned internationally for pioneering new ways of thinking and working in hydrological and ecosystem science, and polar and alpine research. In human geography, our staff have led intellectual agendas in children, youth and families’ research and developed distinctive contributions to knowledge on migration, identity and the state. When it comes to designing your degree, undergraduates benefit directly from staff research expertise through the modular choices available. Our BA and BSc programmes provide a broad foundation in Year 1 and allow you to increasingly specialise in human geography (BA) or physical geography (BSc), or maintain a balance of both, in subsequent years. Both courses provide a sound understanding of how social and physical processes affect our rapidly changing planet, before allowing you to specialise in human geography (BA) or physical geography (BSc). It is still possible to maintain a balance of human and physical geography, and both the BA and BSc allow you to do this. We specialise in four areas of geography, each of which is directly reflected in the structure and content of our courses. In human geography we focus on globalization and geographies of social and political differences across the Global North and South. In physical geography the emphasis is on geomorphological processes and on environmental systems and their management. Undergraduates benefit directly from staff research expertise through the modular choices available. Through our single BSc degree programme students may choose to specialise in human or physical geography if they wish, or continue to maintain a balance of both in years two and three.
Year 1: Areas studied include cartography and digital mapping, quantitative methods, academic and professional study skills, human geography and physical geography with all students attending a residential fieldcourse.
