Course summary

Research overview

Our MRes and (Sc) MRes Geography courses enable you to conduct in-depth research into a science, technological or social science focused aspect of geography. These courses are ideal for those who wish to achieve a research-based masters-level qualification.

Through dedicated support and guidance from subject-specialist academics, MRes students typically undertake extensive research in human geography (social science, arts and humanities aspects of geography), while (Sc) MRes students focus on a scientific or technological aspect of geography. It may be possible to transfer to the Geography PhD at the discretion of the school.

You will benefit from being part of a world-leading, research-intensive school, spending time on a topic of your choice while enhancing your research skills and subject expertise.

Our culture of interdisciplinary study and knowledge transfer enables us to generate high-impact research that influences government public policy, private enterprise and third sector organisations.

Careers

Recent graduates have gone on to careers in the public, private and third sectors, including national and local government departments and regulatory agencies and charities. Many use this degree as a foundation for further study via a PhD.

Many of our students continue in the academic field, either at the University of Nottingham or elsewhere. Other recent graduates have gone on to work for organisations such as the Environment Agency, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Experian, the Forestry Commission, and business and professional service firms.
