Human geography

Catering to growing industry demand, this course equips graduates with an awareness of the economic, political and social issues surrounding the environment, policy and management. It is taught by the School of Geography and Nottingham University Business School, which is located on the award-winning Jubilee Campus. There are opportunities to travel to inspirational destinations in the UK and overseas, through a number of modules with a field trip element. You can also apply to spend a semester of your second year studying abroad, taking similar modules to your counterparts back in Nottingham or expanding your knowledge through other options.

Modules

The first year is a foundation programme covering human geography and geographical information science, as well as business economics, organisational behaviours, consumers and markets. In year two, you will typically take a combination of core geography and business modules, including economic geography and strategic management. You will have the opportunity to choose from a range of human geography, strategic management and geographical information science modules. In year three, the dissertation is the sole core module and you are encouraged to select a business-related aspect of geography. Alongside this, you will choose from a range of advanced geography and business modules.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The number of business studies graduates fell significantly last year after a long period of increase. But there were still more than 14,000 degrees awarded and this is the third most popular subject for new graduates. Because so many graduates get business studies degrees, you can find them everywhere in the economy, and very few jobs are completely out of reach for a good business studies graduate. Around 40% go into jobs in finance, sales, recruitment, management (particularly retail) or marketing. There is also a small (but well paid) group who take their technical skills into computing and IT. Thousands of graduates from this subject go into professional jobs every year, and average starting salaries are above the average for all subjects and particularly healthy in London where they top £25k. Graduates with good degree grades in business studies are much more likely to get good jobs, so don’t be complacent, and keep a close eye on your grades.
