  • Earth Systems - GEO1207 (15 credits)
  • Global Climate Systems - GEO1209 (15 credits)

  • Study Skills for Physical Geographers - GEO1311 (15 credits) (can be taken as long as a similar module of study skills has not been taken as part of another discipline)
  • Modules not available to FCH students are:
