Human Geography BA Hons
With a unique blend of social sciences and geography, gain first-hand experience of the ways in which people interact with their environment and how they form communities, cultures, and economies.
You will study a diverse range of modules that are developed and taught by our world-class academics who are leading experts in human, environmental and political geography, development studies and anthropology, political economy and science and technology studies.
Our location, between the rural settings of the north and the bustling cities of Liverpool and Manchester, enables us to explore some of the UK’s most unique areas of geographic interest. You will gain a wealth of hands-on experience with field trips to places such as Manchester city center, the Cumbrian coast and Lake District, as well as international locations such as Paris, Amazonia, New York, and Croatia.
While studying at the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC), you will have access to state of the art computer systems and software. You will work in comfortable class sizes, giving you the opportunity to get to know your lecturers personally and benefit from their expert knowledge and helpful one-to-one advice.
First-year modules equip you with a well-rounded introduction to some of the key themes of human geography, as well as helping you to develop skills used by geographers to analyze problems within the discipline. In addition to the Geography modules, you will be given the opportunity to take two other subjects alongside your first-year studies. You may use this opportunity to explore some of the many subjects offered within the LEC, study further social sciences such as Sociology or Politics, or gain transferable skills in Economics or Marketing, for example.
In the second year, you will undertake a series of core modules that focus on human geography skills and concepts and research project skills. Optional choices include a field trip to Paris and modules that address individual topics in culture and politics, as well as our Communicating Geography module in which you can help teach the subject in a local school, gaining valuable classroom experience.
