Course summary

Teaching takes place at the Parkgate Road Campus.During this course, you will learn the core subjects of an Economics degree, including micro- and macroeconomics, with examples and applications for day-to-day life, giving attention to the historical, social, political and international contexts that influence the development of modern Economics.Explore places, understand environments, influence change.With a BSc Geography degree from the University of Chester (accredited by the Royal Geographical Society), you will gain the knowledge and skills to tackle global priority issues, such as the climate crisis, and play an important part in creating a sustainable future for all. You will learn about the physical processes that shape our world and understand the most pressing global environment issues of our time. Our BSc Geography course is flexible, so you can choose to develop specialisms in distinctive areas of physical geography, or to maintain a balance of both physical and human geography content. The breadth of teaching and research interests of geography academics at Chester means that our BSc and BA Geography courses are research-informed and comprehensive. Subjects covered include Climate and Sea Level Change, Coastal Processes and Management, River Processes and Flooding, Glaciers and Glaciation, Biogeography, Paleoclimatology, Environmental Pollution, Remote Sensing, Sustainable Development, Poverty and Health, Smart Cities, Migration, Geopolitics and more. Our proximity to the coasts, lakes, rivers and mountains of North Wales, as well as to the urban and industrial centres of Manchester and Liverpool, enables us to incorporate fieldwork and field-based research throughout our course, allowing you to explore key processes and issues in Physical and Human Geography first-hand. We offer international fieldwork opportunities in Norway (Glacial Processes, Cold Environments) and Spain (Arid Geomorphology) and you can even choose to complete a year-long study abroad placement.Our modules are designed to ensure that you develop the knowledge, skills, expertise and confidence to become an agent of change. Wide-ranging and advanced employment-focussed skills are embedded throughout the programme (GIS and Remote Sensing, laboratory analytical methods, environmental monitoring, big data analysis, critical thinking), and we provide an invaluable opportunity for you to build relevant employment and problem-solving experience by working in an external organisation as a part of a full-time five-week work placement. Our graduating students gain professional employment in a wide range of sectors, allowing them to apply their knowledge and skills to drive change on the issues that matter to them.
