About MSci Geography

This degree offers the opportunity to advance to master's level study. The first year of the Geography course at Bristol acts as a foundation, offering all students an advanced overview of both human and physical geography and a wide range of geographical and scientific skills.

The following three years are organised around specialist units which allow you to explore physical and human geography and their interface.

The physical geography units reflect the research skills of the staff in glaciology, hydrology and environmental change.

Human geography units provide an in-depth study of cultural, economic and social geography, with an emphasis on the importance of theory and methods for the analysis of contemporary geographical problems and policies. Topics considered range from economic development and global politics, to inequalities of health and contemporary social theory.

You also take core elements that develop your analytical skills, including the use of specialised computer software, statistics and data collection in the field.
