This course will take you to fascinating fieldwork destinations in the UK and overseas, where you’ll add to your growing skills in understanding and influencing the way humans relate to the environment. In the lab, the field and the archive, you’ll explore the characteristics, diversity, interdependence and changing nature of places. You’ll understand the applications and possibilities Human Geography provides in solving problems, creating wealth and improving quality of life. You’ll collect and analyse spatial, social and environmental data, and become familiar with industry standard GIS software for analysing, visualising and integrating that data.
