Course content

Based within the School of Social Sciences and Humanities, academic staff in Geography and Environment are active researchers, working within and across disciplinary boundaries.

Geography and Environment is home to over 30 academic staff, who are all international experts in their fields, across human and physical geography.

In human geography, our key research themes explore migration, cities, education, and the geographies of children, youth and families. In physical geography, our research covers a wide range of cutting-edge topics including hydrological and ecosystem science, polar and alpine research, and the relationship between climate, water and energy.

We are currently leading a range of exciting research projects funded by major international research bodies and the UK Government that sit at the interface of physical and human geography to tackle real-world global challenges.

Our graduates are highly employable. Employability skills are embedded throughout our programmes, with graduates appointed to posts across a full range of industries and sectors.

Almost all of our postgraduates are in employment within a few months of graduating, and many others choose to embark on academic research careers.
