Our BA Geography degree provides students with a highly transferable set of skills and an understanding of the complexities of our world. Learn how economic, social and cultural processes affect health and wellbeing, human-environment relations, and the market-economy. Explore the similarities, differences and challenges of people living across our inter-connected planet, using tools such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The overseas field course is an important milestone in developing your skills as a researcher, giving you the opportunity to undertake human geographical research in international cities. Further optional overseas field courses allow you to hone these skills in the diverse and unique environments that European and South East Asian locations offer. Your future employability is a key priority for us throughout your studies. Our graduates work in a range of careers including public policy, teaching, environmental consultancy, financial services, retail, marketing, town-planning, GIS related and government advisory roles.
You will develop a broad understanding of both physical and human geography during your first year and take part in a local one-week field course, exploring the socio-economic landscapes of Southampton and their connection to the physical environment. Year two involves a balance of core and optional modules. You will attend a specialist field trip to study the urban landscape of a European city. The individual research project in years two and three forms a major part of the degree programme. Involving personal fieldwork or documentary research in the UK or abroad, the project enables you to pursue your own particular interests in depth. Year three addresses advanced, cutting-edge issues in geography, while the field option explores the production of urban space in 20th century Europe.
