BA Geography is a specialist degree designed for students who wish to focus on Human Geography, either on its own or with some exposure to other Social Sciences taught at the School. The degree produces highly trained geographers, skilled in economic, social and environmental geography with reference to developed and less developed countries. Depending on their choice of options, students are able to focus on one or more of these areas of geography.
The first year provides a foundation in Geography and Environment and also in research techniques and methods. The opportunity to specialise grows in the second and third years. In the final year students undertake research into a topic of their choice, which provides an opportunity for students to pursue their specific interests in greater depth and to display their abilities to undertake research.
