This combined honours course is taught in partnership with one of the UK’s leading Schools of Business and Economics.GeographyThe geography modules span human and physical geography in the first year ensuring you have a sound understanding of how social and physical processes vary within the context of places and regions. In second and final years of the Geography with Economics degree you can specialise in either human or physical geography if you wish, or continue to maintain a balance between the two. Alongside the geography component, you will spend one-third of your time studying economics.
