Course summary

Your BSc Geography degree will show you the landforms and processes on our Earth’s surface in a whole new light. On this course you will study the natural and physical science aspects of geography, including gaining a better understanding of climate change, both in the past and how it might influence our world in the future, you will discover how to read a landscape and the processes that help to shape it. You'll gain an appreciation of our changing world as viewed from space and how to use Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to interrogate and analyse spatial data. The overseas field course is an important milestone in developing your skills as a researcher, giving you the opportunity to study the landscape in more detail in locations such as southern Spain or Tenerife. The trip in year two is a compulsory trip that is included in course fees. Further optional overseas field courses allow you to hone these skills in the unique environments that alpine and tropical locations offer. Your future employability is a key priority throughout your studies and all University of Southampton geography programmes are accredited by the Royal Geographical Society. Whatever you are interested in, from public policy to environmental consultancy, from teaching to financial services; most industries require the analytical and research skills that Southampton graduates will be proficient in.
