This is a combined honours course, where you study Geography alongside International Relations. Our popular Geography course explores contemporary issues that affect our everyday lives such as globalisation, environmental management, conservation, geoarchaeology, nature and society, the problems of contemporary cities, and culture and landscape, as well as alternative ways of solving the problems associated with them. Our laboratory facilities enable you to perform scientific tests ranging from detailed soil analysis of core samples gathered on field trips, to experimental modelling and rainfall simulation. International Relations studies world affairs and examines some of the critical issues of modern and contemporary times, such as the changing nature of international co-operation and conflict; the impact of globalisation on states and societies; and the persistence of world problems such as poverty, human rights and global environmental degradation. Our Centre for Global Politics, Economy, and Society has three research groups in Critical International Studies, European Politics and Society, and Social and Political Change. Teaching staff are active researchers with strong publication records.
In the Geography element of the course, what you study includes: Year 1 core modules include two introductory modules to human geography and environmental geography. In Years 2 and 3, you specialise in the areas of geography that interest you most. The Year 2 compulsory Geographical Enquiry and Field Research module emphasises the importance of fieldwork as part of your training. It is undertaken as part of a week-long residential course that gives you the opportunity to design and carry out your own research. In the International Relations element of the course, what you study includes: Year 1 introduces you to the discipline of International Relations and looks at contemporary issues in world politics. In Year 2 you will study key areas of the discipline, including research into politics and international relations. In Year 3 you will be able to choose from a range of specialist honours modules including Global Environmental Politics and International Human Rights Law.
