Course overview

Human geographical enquiry provides insights into the processes that shape our societies, our relationships with each other, and with nature and the environment. You will examine the spatial dynamics of human behaviour through subjects such as climate change, sustainability, and global politics, and explore the ways in which digital technologies are reshaping society, space and place. We use distinctive and innovative approaches to learning to ensure that you have opportunity to develop knowledge and skills relevant to today’s employers.
