Course summary

This course covers the following topics: Globalization, environmental economics, conservation and ecology, hurricanes, coastal geomorphology, the future of Africa and other developing areas, the geography of health, cultural differences.

Fieldwork and travel: Fieldwork is an important part of our course and there are several one-day excursions and field trips in Years 1 and 2. A compulsory field class in Part IB leads to a piece of assessed practical work. Recent locations include Switzerland, Dublin, Berlin, Morocco and Mallorca. Your Part II dissertation requires basic research in the summer vacation at the end of your second year. Dissertation subjects and locations vary widely: some students travel abroad, others stay in the British Isles.

Careers: While Geography isn’t directly a ‘vocational’ degree, Cambridge Geography graduates are trained to deal with multivariate problems, are skilled in information retrieval, data management and computing, and are used to working on their own initiative, and as such are highly employable in a variety of professions.

Our graduates enter many different careers, including industry and commerce, charities, planning, teaching, finance, social and community work, environmental management and conservation, the media, politics, and the Civil Service. Positions currently held by graduates include entrepreneurs in international companies, analysts for major organisations (eg the International Organisation for Migration, the Royal Institute), House of Commons researchers and news journalists.
