Description

This course follows a similar path to our geography degree, but combines core elements from environmental management studies. As with our other degrees, fieldwork learning and practical application are at the heart of the course, and you’ll develop skills using our own field station, specialist laboratories and geographical information analysis facilities. You’ll also have the opportunity to take fully-funded field trips in the UK, Spain and Switzerland. Specialist modules cover ecology and environmental quality, people and place, habitat management and monitoring, urban social geography, and the management of environmental problems. Depending on how your interests evolve, you can switch between the different geography courses.
