The Departments courses in both human and physical geography have been rated as outstanding in recent National Student Surveys. The teaching on our degree programmes was judged excellent' in the most recent independent review by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), the body responsible for evaluating all University courses in the UK. The report commended the high academic standards and the quality of learning provision in all the Department's programmes.
In your first year you will study physical geography, human geography, geographies of development and geographical techniques, as well as research and field methods.
The first year develops your pre-university knowledge and looks at both human and physical processes. The second and third years allow you to choose from a wide range of options, giving students the chance to focus on sub-disciplines or themes within geography. This can be entirely human geography, or you could choose to take subjects which link human to physical geography topics, such as landscape modification, environmental management or human:environment interactions. In these years you may also develop your studies more widely through taking courses in other Departments
The Department offers rigorous degree courses which will prepare you for a broad range of careers. Our graduates are highly employable and, in recent years, have entered many different human geography-related roles including environmentally-based jobs and careers in local/national government and teaching, as well as journalism, accountancy, law, banking and advertising.
