Our groundbreaking programme offers a new, vibrant and fresh approach to studying geography. This innovative Single Honours degree is aimed at students who are curious to investigate key global challenges by exploring both human and physical issues and, importantly, the connections between the two. This contemporary approach to geographical teaching allows you to gain appreciation of global challenges of the 21st century from multiple perspectives. It breaks down the barriers between disciplines and allows you to gain a holistic understanding of the interactions between people, places and events.
The programme is aimed at students who are curious to explore important global challenges, but who also want to have the flexibility to study specific human and/or physical geography topics as part of their degree. Following a first year of introductory modules that tackle the broad issues, and integrate human and physical geography, you will have the opportunity to tailor your degree by choosing a thematic route through a series of more specialist modules in the second and final years.
This exciting approach combines an all-round training in geography with the flexibility to graduate with either a BA or BSc degree, depending on your choice of optional modules. The nature of this approach to geographical study also means that while you will be expected to have a strong academic profile, you are not required to have previously studied specific subjects at A level.
