Studying Physical Geography expands your understanding of the changing physical landscape, and the interactions that people have with different environments.

An ability to link environmental processes and social and spatial behaviours is a defining feature of geographical practice. As a result, Geography is clearly important in understanding today’s pressing global and local issues including climate change, natural hazard management, and sustainable development.
