|Description:||Geography is the study of the world in which we live, its landscape, environments, places and people. Our BSc Geography degree covers both physical and human geography, focusing on the interactions between the natural environment and human society. Situated in the School of Environmental Sciences, you will benefit from a range of fascinating optional modules allowing you to tailor your degree to your own interests and career aspirations.
During your first year, you will learn about key geographical concepts, find out the latest about global environmental challenges, study how our dynamic planet works, and get outside to develop your skills during practicals, on field trips as well as a residential field course. You will also choose between a module on the interplay between sustainable development and biodiversity, and one on understanding our atmospheres and oceans. As you progress through the course, you will continue developing your skills as a geographer across a range of specialisms, including Geographical Information Systems (GIS). You will be able to shape your degree around your interests by choosing optional modules such as geomorphology, soils, biogeography, climate change and natural hazards. In your final year, your independent research project enables you to put into practice all the skills you have developed to explore in detail a topic that fascinates you. This course, and the Year in Industry variant, is accredited by the Royal Geographical Society
