Course summary

Geography embraces the study of human societies and their environment, and is one of the few subjects in which human and physical aspects of the environment are integrated. Our flexible degree programme enables students to gain an understanding of the major global, regional and local processes that shape our world and the challenges we will face in the future.

Geography With A Language Degree Highlights

Global Opportunities

  • There are many exciting opportunities to study abroad, with options to spend one semester or one academic year in continental Europe, USA, Canada or Australia.

Industry Links

  • We regularly consult and develop links with a large number of employers including the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Ordnance Survey of Northern Ireland, National Trust, and the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland. The employers provide both snapshot advice on their work, as well as run more in-depth advice sessions. We also run a careers seminar programme with guest speakers.

A significant number develop careers in a wide range of other sectors, e.g. management, marketing, NGOs, financial services, the civil service (especially land and property, environment, and development
agencies), computing (especially using geographic data), and various graduate programmes.
