Course summary

This course allows you to study Geography as a single honours degree, giving you an in-depth knowledge of the subject. Geography at BGU considers changing environments and landscapes, the effects of natural processes on the earth, the interaction of people with the planet, and the fortunes and fates of ecosystems. BGU Geography students also learn about the enjoyment of and exploitation of the world’s natural and human resources, the promotion and protection of environments and peoples, issues of inequality and division, and the ways by which we govern and plan countries, cities and countrysides.In order to experience the degree in greater depth, we will be giving you opportunities to take part in optional enrichment activities to enhance your knowledge, including a range of field courses and trips. In studying Geography at BGU, you will also investigate how geographical information is gathered, analysed and displayed using sophisticated and advanced methods and technologies. In addition to our full-time staff, you will learn from other specialists and professionals who work with geographical information and skills. Field course experiences will also be a key aspect of your experience.This course is ideal if you’re interested in the environment and human societies, and want to learn more about how geography features across the world and in everyday life. By the end of the course, you’ll leave us equipped with a wide range of transferable skills, which can be taken to a broad set of public, private, commercial and third-sector settings. This programme has been accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). Students can apply to do a “study abroad” module in semester one of their second year as part of the Erasmus+ Programme.There is no one-size-fits-all method of teaching at BGU – we shape our methods to suit each subject and each group, combining the best aspects of traditional university teaching with innovative techniques to promote student participation and interactivity. You will be taught in a variety of ways, from lectures, tutorials and seminars, to practical workshops, coursework, work-based placements or even field visits. Small group seminars and workshops will provide you with an opportunity to review issues raised in lectures, and you will be expected to carry out independent study. Placements are a key part of degree study at BGU. They provide an enriching learning experience for you to apply the skills and knowledge you will gain from your course and, in doing so, give valuable real-world experience to boost your career.In Geography, we don’t have exams. Instead, we use a wide range of assessment methods which reflect the importance of both thinking and practical approaches to Geography, and the importance we give to the future employment skills of our graduates. These assessment methods are varied and include essays, displays of work, oral presentations, placement portfolios, a dissertation and reports. Our aim is to produce confident geographers who demonstrate well-developed knowledge and awareness, and advanced analytical and communication skills.Throughout this course you will acquire a number of useful skills which can be transferred to the workplace, such as good communication skills, the ability to work effectively in groups and as an individual, good organisational and decision-making skills, effective analytical skills, and the ability to apply theory to practice. Possible future careers for geography graduates include education and teaching, town and country planning, conservation work, market research, the media and tourism and leisure.Find out more: https://www.bishopg.ac.uk/course/geo-foundation-year/
