Course summary

Geography is a wide-ranging subject: from the study of physical landscapes on the one hand, to cultural identity on the other, as well as how these two fields intersect. This breadth of subject matter is drawn together by our shared passion to understand the human and environmental patterns, processes and associations that create our world.

Our MSc Geography gives you the opportunity to choose from across a broad range of modules to build a programme with flexible study tailored to your own interests and professional needs. We offer modules designed to respond to contemporary issues, including the climate and ecological emergency, cities and urbanisation, poverty and inequality, cultural change, nationalism, identity, gender, migration, and international development.

You will study with internationally recognised experts defining their field with ground-breaking research. This directly informs our teaching to create a lively, stimulating environment and provide you with the pivotal knowledge to develop a career in the sector.

The MSc Geography benefits from a mix of classroom and field-based teaching bringing you together with other students to build your social and professional networks and develop important skills in data collection and analysis.


Graduates go on to careers in business, environmental management, local government, policy work, and in environmental groups and charities. Possible professions include geographical information systems officer, nature conservation officer, policy researcher or environmental consultant. This degree can also be useful in becoming a planning and development surveyor or town planner, a market researcher or tourism officer.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
