We specialise in teaching climate change: both in the past and current anthropogenic global warming. As well as hazards, conservation and rivers in physical geography; and sustainability, development, cities and globalisation in human geography.
In year one, you study both physical and human geography. You also learn geographical skills like GIS. In year two and three, you can choose to specialise in physical geography or continue with some human geography as well. And you have a choice of modules to pick from. So you can tailor your degree by picking the aspects of physical geography and human geography that most interest you.
Field work is a key part of our degrees. This is where what you learn in the classroom comes to life. We take you on day trips around the local area, as well as residential trips in the UK and abroad. Recent locations include Almeria, Tenerife and Iceland. You also get the option of an extra year studying abroad.
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.
