|Description:||How do we respond effectively to climate change? How do we manage dwindling resources? How do we deal with population growth in cities and the challenges of more sustainable lifestyles? By studying BA Geography at UEA you will explore the answers to these questions and many more. You’ll even learn to propose solutions of your own. Our BA Geography degree focuses on the human impact of a changing world. As the world changes – whether through technology, politics, culture or climate – our understanding of it must change too, as well as our ways of living within it. You will explore some of humanity’s most pressing problems, such as energy, food and water provision alongside biodiversity and sustainability.
On this course you will gain the skills and knowledge to understand and investigate these challenges, with an emphasis on the geographical dimensions of societal change through the study of communities, cultures and their environment. You will gain a broad understanding of geographical concepts and issues, as well as how to collect data, formulate research questions, present results, and develop practical transferable skills. You’ll also take part in field work, and have the chance to work on group projects. This course, and the Year in Industry variant, is accredited by the Royal Geographical Society.
