Course summary

This course allows you to study the interaction between people and their environment and explore the diverse cultural, economic, urban and political dimensions of current global challenges - with your third year spent overseas, anywhere from Europe, the US and Canada, to Australia or South East Asia. Here at The University of Manchester, we've been teaching Geography for over 125 years - after all, where better to study the subject than the world's first industrial city, turned vibrant metropolis? The city will play an important role in your studies, with plenty of resources for fieldwork right on your doorstep. Further afield, international fieldwork will take place in your second year, in destinations like Greece, Amsterdam Hong Kong or the Czech Republic. The wide range of teaching and research interests of our academics - who have an impressive international research reputation - will make it easy for you to be flexible about what, and how, you learn. This allows you the maximum choice to tailor your studies to suit your interests.
