About Geography at University of Sheffield

Our human geography course offers a critical and creative exploration of our relationship to space, society, politics, culture and identity. We'll show you how to apply geographical concepts and skills to global challenges such as climate change, poverty and inequality, geopolitical uncertainty, social change, urbanisation and food insecurity.

This BA will give you the specialist, practical and transferable skills you need for your future career. Typically our human geography graduates progress to careers in central and local government, NGOs, education, sustainability, business, journalism and policy.

Integral to your degree is field-based learning, independent research and training in qualitative, quantitative and geospatial research methods. We use the space around us as our living laboratory: you'll spend time in the field exploring the human geographies of post-industrial Sheffield and uncovering the impact of human activities on the stunning natural landscape of the Peak District National Park.

This programme has been accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). Accredited degree programmes contain a solid academic foundation in geographical knowledge and skills, and prepare graduates to address the needs of the world beyond higher education. The accreditation criteria require evidence that graduates from accredited programmes meet defined sets of learning outcomes, including subject knowledge, technical ability and transferable skills.
