Do you want a degree that will give you unforgettable experiences, alongside the study of awesome geography and developing essential skills that will improve your employability? This course will take you from local to international locations; from rural Pembrokeshire to New York’s iconic cityscape, the hazardous, volcanic landscape of Sicily or Malta’s dynamic coastline, and to the changing face of communities in the Netherlands or Uganda.
Through this process of experiential learning, you’ll study contemporary, relevant issues that will engage you in an exploration of the political, economic, environmental, social and cultural activities that shape people and places in a global society. You will also study great aspects of the physical environment including the processes that shape and change it, and the tools we use to manage it.
Beyond a common first year, you will be able to choose to evenly balance your study of human and physical geography, or to specialise and focus on either the physical or human geography elements that really interest you, shaping your final geography degree.
