BSc Geography (Human) L722

Full Time: 3 Years
Our BSc Human Geography covers everything from climate change, globalisation and international labour markets to local and national issues of social deprivation and water pollution.
We have particular strengths in development in the Global South, neighbourhood regeneration in the Global North, human-environment interactions and the geographies of consumption.
On this course you will work with renowned and respected academics. Current projects involve neighbourhood regeneration, resilience and sustainability, food and consumerism in the media and responses to epidemics in third world countries.
One current module examines how celebrities are being used to promote discussion of environmental issues such as drought and climate change.
Field classes are one of the most popular aspects of this degree and include trips to Berlin, Naples and the island of Crete. These trips are subsidised but additional costs are involved. You will be guaranteed a place on at least one field trip. We are also developing additional field trips to Iceland, Africa and Latin America.
In your final year you will be able to specialise in areas that you find interesting and important. You will have the opportunity to work with greatly respected academics from other departments on real research projects.
Our study abroad programme offers you the opportunity to apply to study at one of our partner universities in Europe, Australia, Canada or the USA. Recent destinations for study abroad include Melbourne, Australia and Ottawa, Canada. You can also choose to take a year of professional experience as part of your degree between second and third year.
