Geography explores the dynamic, complex and related physical and human processes that make the world work. At Hull, you study the key theoretical ideas and practical approaches. We specialise in tackling the major issues: from globalisation and sustainability, to climate change and geohazards.
In your first year, you get a solid grounding in both human and physical geography. You also learn geographical skills. In your second and third years, you can continue to do both human and physical geography, or choose to focus on human geography.
Throughout your course, you have many opportunities to join field trips. In your second year, you get the chance to do a residential field trip abroad. Recent locations include Barcelona, Berlin, Rome, Hong Kong and Malawi. In your third year, there’s the option to join the physical geography advanced field trip to Iceland. And the best bit is, the cost of all core field trips is covered by your course fees.
We also offer modules designed to help you develop professional skills. You can choose to do a consultancy project with an external company. Or go into schools to learn about teaching. Or develop your geospatial and modelling skills with GIS.
