About Geography and Planning at Sheffield Hallam University

Our geography courses develop your understanding of * cultural * economic * environmental * political * social processes and how they interact in different places and spaces. This course is ideal if you wish to study human geography and urban planning together. We introduce a range of related social sciences such as sociology, economics and politics. You also develop your IT, communication and research skills, which are vital for your future career. You study alongside the human geography students during the first year, and take specialist modules in planning. In your second and final years, you study core modules in human geography and research development, including contemporary debates and globalisation. You continue to focus on planning, and your choice of final year dissertation topic allows you to specialise further. In year three, you can take an optional one year paid work placement. Previous students have worked in organisations such as * local authorities * wildlife trusts * the Environment Agency * Transport for London. You can also choose a work-based learning module in year two to gain work experience. You can study abroad for a year in an overseas university in places such as Europe, Australia and Canada. Subsidised fieldwork puts your learning into context. The current programme consists of local and regional day visits, and residential field courses to European cities such as Prague, Berlin and Barcelona. You can also study a foreign language. Our BA/BSc (Honours) Human Geography shares the same first year core programme. You can transfer to this course at the end of the first year if you prefer. You may be able to study this course part-time. Please contact the admissions office for further details.
