Studying BSc Geography at Hull means learning about the big challenges facing the world today, such as climate change, sustainability and hazards. You’ll work with academics who are experts in their fields and who will engage you with the latest research.
Our degree is accredited by the Royal Geographical Society, which means that the programme has been approved by the relevant professional body.
In the first year, you’ll learn about both physical and human geography, as well as developing geographical skills like GIS. In your second and third years, you get to choose whether to specialise in physical geography or to continue with some human geography as well. You’ll have a choice of modules to pick from in your second and third years, so you can tailor your degree to your interests by picking the aspects of physical geography and human geography that most interest you.
At Hull, we specialise in teaching climate change (both in the past and current anthropogenic global warming), hazards, conservation and rivers in physical geography, and sustainability, development, cities and globalisation in human geography.
Field work is a key part of our degrees. This is where what you learn in the classroom comes to life. We’ll take you on day trips around the local area, as well as residential trips in the UK and abroad. Our teaching project and professional consultancy modules enable you to develop employment skills.
Studying BSc Geography with us will make you highly employable, both in the environment sector and in the wider employment market - not only will you gain subject-specific knowledge and skills in areas like climate change and GIS, but you’ll also develop a wide range of general skills, such as working in a team and data analysis.
