Course summary

Our planet has constantly reshaped itself, but in the twenty-first century, the impact of humanity on all aspects of the planetary machine is undeniable. In this respect, the world needs Geographers more than ever. Geography is a discipline founded on understanding the complex links between the planet, its inhabitants, and the places where they live. As a Physical Geographer, you will help us to tackle the challenges that lie ahead.This degree is perfect for you if you wish to experience the full breadth of Geography, but would like specialise primarily in Physical Geography. After a common first year with BA students, in Years 2 and 3 we offer a diversity of optional Physical Geography modules, covering topics spanning river systems, tropical rainforests, deserts and climate change. There remain Human Geography module options in years 2 and 3, so you can tailor your degree to become a generalist, or a specialist in Physical Geography, depending on your interests. Throughout you will gain transferable skills in remote sensing, geographical information science and statistical and data presentation methods.The degree includes UK residential fieldwork in Years 1 and 2 going to Devon, Dartmoor and the Lake District. In Year 2 we take you to Almeria (Spain) to explore Europe's only desert. There are options for further residential fieldwork around the world in Year 3.If at the end of Year 1 you decide you would prefer to focus primarily on human geography, you can transfer to the BA degree in Year 2.
