Course summary

Our Environmental Geography degree looks to offer a unique learning experience by providing you with the opportunity to combine the holistic investigative approach of a geographer with the applied skills of an environmental manager in order to address the significant environmental challenges faced by society today. You will study a range of modules that develop skills in geographical investigation, while also studying how to mitigate and ameliorate climatic and environmental changes. This combination of traditional Geography with Environmental Management offers a unique opportunity for you to develop those skills required by society. The unique feature of this course is the embedding of a placement with industry into the Second Year. During this year you will study taught modules during Trimester One, before undertaking a placement in industry during Trimesters Two and Three. You will have the option to study themes covering Geographical information Systems, applied environmental skills, rivers and glaciers, planning and urban studies, before undertaking your placement. The placement allows you to experience geographical and environmental themes in practice, working with one of our key industrial partners or another organisation of your choosing. You will:Have opportunity to undertake a placement with a geographical and/or environmental organisationBe taught by internationally recognised experts in a number of fields of Geography and Environmental ManagementStudy across both Geography and Environmental Management subject areas
