Geography Degrees

Study Geography Degrees

The study of the Earth's landscapes, peoples, places and environments, geography deals with social sciences and natural sciences of life on earth. You can study both physical and human geography, which will usually both be covered in an undergraduate geography degree. Geography plays an important role in our understanding of physical and spatial systems, environments and the organisation and characteristics of society as a whole.

A undergraduate degree in geography will cover the basic geographical concepts, before moving onto more complex and developed ideas. You will study modules in the areas of environment, society, economy, research methods and development.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. This will include lectures and seminars, as well as possible field trips. The field trips will allow to use the skills you have been developing in a practical environment.
