Course summary

Geography is the subject of our time, dynamic and constantly evolving as the world around us changes. Geographers focus on key global challenges and work on developing solutions. A Geography degree will ensure you can make a difference in the 21st century. This degree is accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), so you can be sure your programme comprises what is expected of a Geography graduate.Our MGeog programme is a 4-year, integrated Masters degree. You will have the opportunity to study a broad range of human, physical and environmental topics. The course is identical to our BA (L700) and BSc (F800) courses in Years 1 and 2, and you have the choice to specialise in the human or physical/environmental topics that interest you most. In Year 3, you complete a secondary data project to help prepare you for undertaking research. The fourth year is mainly focused on your own research, allowing you to specialize according to your interests, undertake work- based learning and provide a deeper understanding of geographical approaches. Our staff will share their passion for the subject and their knowledge with you. Our modules reflect staff interests, and topics may include: Sustainability, Climate Change, Geohazards and disasters, Environmental Modelling, Rivers and Coasts, Renewable Energy, People and Identity, Food Systems, Rural-Urban Areas, Socio-Spatial Inequalities, and Governance. At Bangor, many of our modules offer regular half and full-day field trips, taking advantage of our unique location, which is set against the backdrop of the dramatic North Wales coastline, Menai Strait, and the mountains of Snowdonia National Park. We provide fieldwork opportunities in North Wales (Yr1) and SW England (Yr2) included in the tuition fee. In Year 3, there is the option to go overseas to Barcelona or Tenerife. We offer funds to help with fieldwork costs. You will become well-trained in a range of research methods (field and laboratory). You will acquire specialised technical and practical skills (Geographical Information Systems (GIS), IT, Statistics), as well as transferrable and professional skills (leadership, team player, communicator). You can gain international experience by studying (at one of our partner institutions) or working abroad as part of your degree, with our International Experience Year. Our graduates have gone on to work as: environmental consultants, town/emergency planners, teachers, surveyors, sustainability/recycling officers, data analysts, or GIS officers/cartographers, or taken on roles in business, finance and human resources, or marketing, PR and sales. This programme also provides a springboard into postgraduate study/research. If you prefer a three-year programme, you might consider our sister courses, BSc. Geography (F800) or BA Geography (L700). .
