Course summary

People, communities, cultures, economies and their influence on why things happen the way they do; that’s what encapsulates human geography. It helps shape the view of how we might do things tomorrow and in the years ahead. * This course covers a range of subjects including contemporary social structures and inequalities within society, cultures and regions, plus the opportunity to examine the role geopolitics has on our contemporary world. Underpinning all of this is the theme of sustainability and planetary boundaries. You’ll have the chance to concentrate on human geography themes but will also be offered module options from the Geography BSc(Hons) course. * There’s an optional work placement year in the third year to help you to gain real-world experience and insight to boost your employability. During your final year you’ll also have the opportunity to conduct independent research as part of your dissertation. * We also firmly believe in ‘learning through doing’ and since fieldwork is an integral part of any geographers training, you’ll find that we’ve embedded field-trips, including residential field courses in Years 1 and 2, into all three of our Geography degrees, so you can fully embrace the fantastic opportunities that learning in the field presents. * All our teaching staff are educated to doctoral level have expertise in a range of geography subject areas and by studying this course you'll become eligible for membership of the Royal Geographical Society (https://www.rgs.org/join-us/) giving you access to resources, events, and networking opportunities via the Royal Geographical Society community. Professional links and accreditation: The course has been designed towards accreditation with the Royal Geographical Society (https://www.rgs.org/research/programme-accreditation/information-for-graduates-and-employees/) and we will be seeking accreditation within the timelines set by the Royal Geographical Society. This entry will therefore be updated in due course. By studying this course you'll become eligible for membership of the Royal Geographical Society (https://www.rgs.org/join-us/) giving you access to resources, events, and networking opportunities via the Royal Geographical Society community. Additional costs: Field trips as part of a standard module are funded by the University. Residential field courses will cost up to £150, (optional overseas trips may incur slightly higher costs depending on duration and destination). By its very nature the study of geography entails being outside on fieldwork. Participants on field trips should be adequately clothed in terms of personal clothing (wind and waterproof jacket/trousers) plus appropriate footwear. We hold a limited stock of waterproof garments that students can use but we do not supply walking boots. Students enrolling on our courses should be prepared to purchase their own walking boots. The cost of boots varies depending on their intended use but if you budget between £60-£100 you should be able to get a good pair which will last for the duration of your degree.
