You can then tailor your degree to your interests by drawing from a range of modules that focus on key contemporary issues such as globalisation, identity, racism, nationalism, community and diaspora, the city and urban inequality, international development and poverty.You will benefit from our mix of classroom and field-based teaching that brings together students from diverse backgrounds, to build social and professional networks and develop important research skills in data collection and analysis that you need for both academic research and in the workplace.**HIGHLIGHTS**- We offer a range of core modules in human geography, covering major contemporary issues, such as globalisation, identity, racism and nationalism.
