Course summary

This programme has been accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and focuses on urban, social, cultural and tourism geographies. York is a fascinating city with a thriving tourist industry, meaning it is an ideal location to study these exciting areas of geographical interest. You will get the opportunity to study a broad range of key geographical themes including landscape, place, spatial variation and inequality which are integrated throughout the programme.On this course you won’t be confined to the classroom, from the start you'll actively engage with the environments and issues we investigate through fieldwork. You will be applying your knowledge to the real world across a variety of places, spaces and landscapes – from exploring the city on your doorstep to developing your own research on residential field trips in the UK and abroad. Field trips are great fun, but this real-world experience is also integral to your study, which is why the costs of participation are covered by your course fees. They allow you to develop a range of technical skills, deepen your understanding through first-hand experience and gain confidence in your abilities as an independent researcher.The transferable skills that you will gain on this course will make you employable for positions in tourism management, heritage management, urban regeneration and many other sectors. You'll learn to analyse geographical data and critically interpret landscapes, as well as designing and implementing your own research projects. You will also gain skills such as communication, team-working, problem-solving and time-management, which are applicable to an even wider range of careers.
