Course summary

A warming planet, all manner of inequality and the consequences of political instability are big themes in the world today. Our Geography BSc(Hons) covers the core principles and contemporary views of both human and physical geography, plus the opportunity to specialize a little depending on how our modules shape your interests. * You’ll have the chance to study a range of subjects including biogeography, earth processes, landscape and fluvial systems, climate science, environment and society, environment and cultural challenges, and migration and geopolitics before specialising in your final year. * In the third year of the course you’ll have the opportunity to benefit from a work placement. This could help you to gain relevant real-world experience and give you a head start in your chosen career. In the final year you’ll have the chance to develop and hone your independent research skills as part of your dissertation module. * We also firmly believe in ‘learning through doing’ and since fieldwork is an integral part of any geographers training, you’ll find that we’ve embedded field-trips, including residential field courses in Years 1 and 2, into all three of our Geography degrees, so you can fully embrace the fantastic opportunities that learning in the field presents. * All our teaching staff are educated to doctoral level have expertise in a range of geography subject areas and by studying this course you'll become eligible for membership of the Royal Geographical Society giving you access to resources, events, and networking opportunities via the Royal Geographical Society community. Professional links and accreditation: The course has been designed towards accreditation with the Royal Geographical Society (https://www.rgs.org/research/programme-accreditation/information-for-graduates-and-employees/) and we will be seeking accreditation within the timelines set by the Royal Geographical Society. This entry will therefore be updated in due course. By studying this course you'll become eligible for membership of the Royal Geographical Society (https://www.rgs.org/join-us/) giving you access to resources, events, and networking opportunities via the Royal Geographical Society (https://www.rgs.org/join-us/) community. Additional costs: Field trips as part of a standard module are funded by the University. Residential field courses will cost up to £150, (optional overseas trips may incur slightly higher costs depending on duration and destination). By its very nature the study of geography entails being outside on fieldwork. Participants on field trips should be adequately clothed in terms of personal clothing (wind and waterproof jacket/trousers) plus appropriate footwear. We hold a limited stock of waterproof garments that students can use but we do not supply walking boots. Students enrolling on our courses should be prepared to purchase their own walking boots. The cost of boots varies depending on their intended use but if you budget between £60-£100 you should be able to get a good pair which will last for the duration of your degree.
