Course summary

Geography is the study of the Earth and the link between physical and human landscapes. It explores the relationships between people, place and the environment and how these vary across and between places. Our BA (Hons) Geography, Culture and Heritage considers these links from a humanities and social science perspective, focusing on issues such as land use, planning and development, globalisation, climate change, energy, and tourism, in order to examine human relationships with the environment as well as the subjects of key cultural, literary, linguistic, historical, musical and philosophical issues at a national and regional level. A degree in Geography, Culture and Heritage provides you with the knowledge and skills to understand many aspects of our rapidly changing world, equipping you to tackle real-world problems in a range of organisations and sectors, with the wide curriculum developing both specialist and transferable skills. You will also be able to immerse yourself in the wealth of fascinating culture and heritage that the Highlands and Islands of Scotland has to offer, and gain an understanding of its place in a global context.Geography graduates are among the most employable, with skills developed in presenting ideas in reports and oral presentations, in data collection and analysis, and in the use of specialist mapping and statistical software. A significant number of Geography graduates move on to careers in finance, marketing and law, or to further postgraduate study, teaching and research. The knowledge and skills taught in this BA (Hons) Geography, Culture and Heritage degree are of relevance to many areas of employment, including: renewable energy; energy efficiency; waste management; tourism; rural and community development; agriculture; local government; planning; logistics; environmental agencies; primary and secondary teaching; interpretation; journalism and the media; heritage sector; museums; and government agencies.
