Do you want to learn about the processes that shape our ever-changing planet and about the interactions between the natural environment and society? Our Geography BSc programme enables you to understand how physical, chemical, biological and human agents affect the landscape over timescales from milliseconds to millennia. You can explore a diverse mix of subjects from glaciology, river science and geoecology to climate change and natural hazards, and learn about novel approaches to environmental management. You can also choose to study human geography modules on subjects including geographies of nature, development, technology and society. We will train you to undertake independent research using our state-of-the-art field and laboratory equipment, geographical information systems (GIS) and environmental modelling facilities. You will participate in UK-based fieldwork and will have the option to go on international field trips to New Zealand or the USA.
Undergraduate students across our geography degree programmes share a common first year to establish a necessary grounding in the discipline. Second and third year teaching allows students to focus more as their interests develop, culminating in a third year independent research project that can be focused anywhere in the world. For more details on the modular structure please check the website.
