About the course

BA Geography addresses dynamic and complex social, economic and political processes in a range of urban and rural settings in the developed and the developing world. During this programme, you’ll get to grips with subject-specific geography modules and develop a range of valuable skills in GIS, qualitative methods, group work and report writing.

There are three options available for studying Geography BA at Hull. The foundation year is ideal for students who need to strengthen their academic background in order to meet the entry requirements for the degree. The Geography BA degree offers a three-year study option, as well as a four-year option with the opportunity to study abroad for a year.

Flexibility is key – you can choose combinations of human and physical geography modules or combine your study of geography with another subject. You participate in field studies in the local area and in overseas destinations such as Morocco, Iceland, Malawi, Germany and Italy. And there are optional field trips to international sites or UK destinations during the final year of study. All core field trips are provided free.
