Course summary

This flexible degree allows you to explore the physical processes that shape the Earth, the social, cultural and economic processes that influence people and places, and the human environment relationships. You will begin with a broad geographical foundation that introduces you to social, physical and environmental geographies. You will go on to develop understanding in, and the ability to analyse key global challenges, such as climate change, natural hazards, water resources and pollution. Our modules cover everything from glacial and ocean environments to soils and environmental policy. We will introduce you to a range of research methods and IT, GIS, and statistical skills. You will develop professional and transferrable skills that employers value. During your final year you will conduct your own research under staff guidance, allowing you to showcase your abilities developed throughout your studies. Field work is an integral part of this degree, and there will be lots of opportunity to get outside and learn valuable skills in/around North Wales, alongside residential trips in the UK and Europe. You can study abroad or participate in our placement year (either work or study). This degree is accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). Accredited degrees contain a solid academic foundation in geographical knowledge and skills and prepare you to address the needs of the world beyond higher education.BA or BSc? Students on both degrees can choose from the same range of optional modules. If you chose this BSc course you might mainly select physical geography modules, but you can still choose human geography modules that give you the flexibility to maintain your interest in both sides of the discipline.MGeog?
