Course summary

As we attempt to improve human welfare and environmental quality, it is vital that we have a good understanding of the forces which shape development and social change in our interdependent world. To this end, geography at LSE focuses on understanding the social, economic, political and environmental aspects of geography with the objective of informing policy processes worldwide.

You will learn to understand the uneven nature of economic and social development and the varying characteristics of people's lives in different locations, and will develop skills in the analysis and evaluation of geographical information. In your third year, you will undertake an independent research project, which will allow you to apply your knowledge to a topic of your choosing.

This degree aims to produce highly skilled geographers, trained in many of the discipline’s core areas of expertise (urban, economic, political, environmental, and social geography), with reference to developed and developing countries. The analytical and communication skills you will develop will also be highly valued in many occupations and careers.

Students on this programme have the opportunity to receive a language specialism attached to their degree certificate and transcript.
