Course content

The Department of Geography has a vibrant community of scholars - most are members of one of four research groups: Cities, Environment, Politics & Development and Environmental Monitoring & Modelling. Some members of each of these groups are also members of the multidisciplinary Hazards, Vulnerability & Risk Unit. Staff research also ranges well beyond those groups and involves both individual scholarship and colleagues in other institutions as well as the department. These groups operate through staff-funded research and PhD student collaboration on research projects.
