Course summary

Programme overview

Human geography is a dynamic discipline with profound influence on current debates in the social sciences and humanities. Human geographers focus on the relationships between space and society, particularly the interconnection between environment, place and identity; knowledge; globalisation processes; social justice; and a variety of other vital themes relevant to the contemporary world.

This programme provides you with a rigorous grounding in social theory and mainstream debates and techniques in human geography. It also offers a thorough training in qualitative and quantitative methods. Options allow for the development of specialisms in historical–cultural themes, postcolonial and decolonial geographies, spatial modelling, and debates surrounding environmental conflict and science and technology.

The programme is closely linked to the University's Cabot Institute, which brings together multidisciplinary research into all aspects of global environmental change.

Careers

This programme equips you for a career in high-level public research, business or the creative industries, and provides an outstanding academic training for prospective PhD students and for those seeking a master's-level qualification.

Graduates from this programme have progressed to a variety of future careers, including journalism and writing, urban and town planning, housing justice, food poverty initiatives, creating start-up businesses, the third sector and research. Around 40 per cent of our graduates go on to pursue further research training, for example through a PhD.
