Course summary

Economics and geography have been moving ever closer in their concerns. The fields of development and the environment are obvious examples. This challenging combined-studies programme is designed to equip students with a thorough grounding in the theoretical principles and techniques of application in both fields.

Your learning

Your timetable will include lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical classes. As you progress, the focus shifts to independent and critical learning, with student-led discussions becoming more important. While the structure of the degree is well defined, it is still possible to make some changes to this - to allow for dissertations and fieldclass work, for example.

Assessment

First-year assessment combines independent coursework completed throughout the year with written examinations taken at the end of the year. In the second and third years, the assessment may vary between modules, some combining written examinations with various types of independent projects, some assessed solely by written examination.

Careers

Having been trained in both sciences and humanities, UCL geographers are skilled in taking different perspectives on an issue, working independently and adapting to changing circumstances. Skills gained through the further study of economics include finding solutions to real-world problems, mathematical skills and an enhanced understanding of political and economic events.

A degree combining economics and geography has proved attractive to many employers, particularly those in business and commerce, the public sector and international organisations.
