Undergraduate study

We offer a choice of three high quality undergraduate degree courses in Geography to suit the different needs and interests of our students.

We present both a balanced overview of the contemporary study of human and physical geography and also a wide spectrum of research-led teaching, with an emphasis on scientific, analytical and critical content.

After a common Year 1 course, students choose from among a variety of pathways, allowing for specialisation in human geography only, physical geography only, or a mix of the two. These pathways are then followed beyond Year 1 to graduation.
