Physical Geography BSc
At the interface of the human and the physical environments, geography is an integrative discipline that fosters a broad perspective on the problems of today’s world and equips you with a variety of transferable and employable skills. The School of Geography, Geology and the Environment at the University of Leicester is a stimulating, supportive and friendly place in which to study contemporary geography.
Our degrees allow you to specialise in physical geography or human geography – or to combine topics that bridge the science/social science interface. Throughout your degree there will be an emphasis on gaining practical skills and putting them to use in a critical manner. You will receive all of the training needed to carry out independent research in a range of contexts.
If you choose to study for the BSc in Physical Geography you will focus exclusively on the scientific aspects of geography. You will be taught current theories about the origin and formation of the Earth, Earth surface processes, biogeographic patterns, climatic change and the physical science of climate change. You will also gain skills in remote sensing and geographical information science. Practical work is at the core of this degree and you will learn to plan and carry out research and to analyse and interpret scientific data.
This degree involves no human geography.
If you like the sound of this degree but don't want to ignore human geography, you should consider the Geography BSc.
What's the difference?
The BA and BSc in Geography each cover both Human Geography (social science; people and places) and Physical Geography (natural science; Earth and environment).
The Geography BA concentrates more on Human, with a bit of Physical
The Geography BSc concentrates more on Physical, with a bit of Human
The Physical Geography BSc (this course) concentrates only on Physical
