Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

You will undertake an individual human geography research project over two years (MPhil) or three years (PhD), supported by our globally respected academic staff.

Swansea is a research-led University and our department makes a significant contribution. We have staff working on post-disaster landscapes (Professor Marcus Doel), new understandings of nationalism (Dr Angharad Closs Stephens), post-conflict cultural revival (Dr Amanda Rogers) and reducing poverty (Dr Sergei Shubin and his team) aim to reduce poverty through sustainable aquaculture via their PACONDAA project. Their expertise will support your work. Please see our Human Geography Research page for more information on our current research projects
