Geography

"GEOGRAPHY MAKES US THINK GLOBALLY AND ACT LOCALLY"

There has never been a better or more important time to study Geography. With growing interest in issues such as climate change, migration, environmental degradation and social cohesion, Geography is one of the most relevant courses you could choose to study. Geographers are also highly employable.

Geography develops and applies your understanding of            geographical concepts and processes in order to understand and interpret our changing world. You will engage critically with real world issues and places, apply your own geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to make sense of the world around you.

Whatever your passion for the world - fascination with landscapes or concerns about inequality - Geography will provide you with knowledge and transferable skills that will reward you personally and advance you professionally.
